Default What's the most expensive/important thing you've ever lost?

I just lost my 4 gig, $ 25 Sundisk Memory stick which although not very expensive did contain some very important school work. Thankfully, I have copies of them on my computer:). However, around Christmas I did get a 200 dollar PSP stolen (which was the most expensive thing I've lost to this point).
Other than that, I haven't lost anything of great value or importance. Just wondering because I want to get some disappointment off my shoulders from discussing this.

I've mentioned it once before on here. My hard drive crashed about two years ago. I spent 6+ years collecting music, most notably an incredibly impressive Led Zeppelin collection: multiple versions/sources of every bootleg ever released, studio outtakes, interviews, and video. Most of it I'll probably never see again. I've learned to live with it and as a result, hardly listen to the almighty Zep anymore. I guess I'm just heart-broken still.

I lost my grandfathers gold ring. It was given to him by his grandfather when he was born and then given to me. Inside the band was engraved with all our birth years. Pretty much the most sacred thing I owned. Kept it in (what I thought was) a safe place at my parents house and then when I returned for it, it was just gone. Probably one of my dad's shady friends thieved it, dunno though.

Also lost a TI-83 Plus. Pretty sure it was nerds.

All in the same day, I got a $120 speeding ticket, and lost my wallet, which had $300 in cash in which I withdrew to take with me on vacation.

I also lost about $250 worth in new clothes when I was running late on a return trip home and forgot the bags in a hotel room in Florida. They were never recovered.

Probably a jacket, or a video game.
