In some locations liquid mercury is still used in dentistry for fillings. You may find it best to talk with a dentist or company that sells mercury to dentists in order to find out. The following link also had some information that might be helpful to you:, On this page it shows the metal prices for mercury as long as it is 99.99% pure. According to the chart it is possible to get between $1800 and $2000 for a flask of pure liquid mercury. The site seems to be a Chinese one, which is probably where most dentists are still using liquid mercury.

In the USA, liquid mercury is considered a dangerous metal that can cause harm if exposed to. Something else to keep in mind is that the rarer the metal in question and the more in demand the metal the better price you will get for it.
