Yes, their price depends upon the material they are made up of. Nickle or chromium is more expansive than iron.

thanks for your help, I'd rather do something responsible than just throw them out with the trash.

Agree with both answers above.  Please take to scrap metal yard and DO NOT just throw away!
We all need to recycle this type of material and it's just to your own good that you can get a few dollars back for them.
Since your cleaning out the basement, be sure to take the old paints and such to your local hazardous waste dump and not the regular landfill or your trash pick-up.

Yes, nails are scrap metal. You should collect a sufficient quantity in order to get the best pricing.
