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 very 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 and then tell me - which one would you buy?
