my scrap metal is not tradable

My friend just traded me a bunch of scrap metal from his account to mine and it says it cant be traded when i try and sell it. This is weird because it was just traded to me. Is there a hold on these items?

Here is a link to my backpack: http://www.tf2items.com/id/Dorok

Are you sure that he traded you that scrap metal not one of the other two? If you craft metal (or anything else for that matter) using something non-tradeable, normally an achievement item, then whatever you have crafted will also become non-tradeable.

Get enough metal, and use it to craft a hat.
Sure, the hat will be untradable, but, it could be one you really want.

Items traded to F2P accounts are—unless I am mistaken—always tradable.

Also nice attempt at some Derren Brown-esque mind control.

did you craft the scrap together into reclaimed/refined? If so you could have used some untradable scrap in the process, which you get from crafting achievement items. AFAIK if you use even a single scrap when crafting a refined, it will inherit its untradable property

If you end up being stuck with it, then you could always use it to craft the Horsemann's Headtaker.
