Following on from the Finches thread where a stolen bike valued at £6000 was returned to said shop following a break in it got me wondering after Oakr’s reply that we all have items that are expensive (to us) or have significantly upgraded computers, etc.
To make things easier I’m excluding vehicles (and children, for that matter) although if you’re a motoring hobbyist we can make an exception.
As boring as I’m sure it is to most of you mine is a rotating laser level made by Hilti. For those of you who are unaware of what that is, it’s the yellow box on top of a tripod you see on Grand Designs. At sixteen hundred quid it is the mutt’s nuts, has never, ever failed me, given an inaccurate reading and has earnt its worth tenfold.
That being said, despite its value if I had a gun put to my head and was told to hand over my most precious item(s), then it would have to be the relatively worthless box of Roman coins I’ve accumulated when working in the footings.
