Here's a good one for you. You come home from
work one day to find that your wife has given away your
prized comic that you've had since childhood to the Church
jumble sale, which is on the following afternoon. Next day
(after checking on your wife in hospital), you rush down to
the sale the second it opens to buy back your treasured
periodical, but when you get there, guess what?
There's another issue of the same comic, but in almost
pristine condition, whereas your own is really rather tatty.
You have only just enough to buy one or the other, as you've
only got £2 on you (yours costs 50p, the other is £2), and
a snotty kid is beginning to show an interest in them from
further down the table so you'll have to move fast.
Neither copy is worth much on the collectors'
market, the comic is only of sentimental value to you,
and that pristine issue reminds you just as much of your
childhood as your battered old copy. So have a think
