I do not have one as i believe possessions can not be taken with you when you die, but do you have a most treasured possession?

My most irreplaceable possession seems to be my distance spectacle frames, which are about 35 years old; they don't make anything like them any more, and I've never found any new frames anywhere near as comfortable (the lenses are large, "aviator" style) so I always get new lenses made for the same frames, but I'm afraid that one day they will break.

Mine is probably the thousands of pictures I have of family, friends, and the special moments they depict.

Well, of course not, but don't you have some possession right now that you value highly?

I don't think good health counts as a possession, but that is something that I am very thankful for, and that I value very highly.

Of my actual possessions, this one is up near the top, my 1948-ish HD Panhead:

My collection of history books, and math/physics textbooks, as well as my guitars. My first to grab would be my Gibson Les Paul and Martin acoustic.

No i have nothing of value right now, as for your 1948 Panhead it is a lovely bike, even if i can admire some thing i do not want to own it.

My most treasured possession is alway, generically, my car. I say "generically" because it's never the specific car I treasure, just the fact that any car allows me to get around so much more conveniently than otherwise.

After having lost one of my valued possessions, I have come to the philosophical conclusion, it is all just stuff. My most valued treasures are my loved ones.

My most valuable possession is my new lap top PC with touch screen. The reason why I value it is the same as zooby's.

Almost everything mine and around me. Their existence completes mine and indicates my possessions of them.
Once I thought what I had lost would remain as an open wound that time could never have healed. But later I realized I had been severely *possessed* by those materials instead of me being their owner who should have possessed them. It is the worst obsession I've ever had.

Probably my Fender Stratocaster*:

* But after one of my dear cats died about a year ago I came to the stark realisation how little inanimate possessions like these actually mean to me. But then again, we are all going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones:

A small collection of artifacts, a few Egyptian from different Dynasties and an Etruscan piece. Though I feel no pride of possession I feel a strong responsibility to preserve. After my wife and the dog they would come first in a fire.

Isn't that the truth a lot of the time.
Ones possessions having such a hold on you. You can't get rid of it because of "make up a reason"
But when its gone, it is soon forgotten.
The winner is the one with the most junk at the end, as that comedian said.

Don't really have one. Anything is replaceable. Photos carry memories but these days we get flooded with pictures.

I don't know yet. I'll tell you once I lose it. You know... because they say:
Nobody knows what they have until they lose it.
:-p

Box of memories where I keep various souvenirs and little gifts from dear people. But I'm not overly attached to it, I always put things inside but never take time to take them out and remind myself. Maybe I'm not old enough yet :-)
I don't own anything especially valuable or precious. I'm proudly owned by a black cat and a crazy cockerspaniel.

I don't know but I'm not particularly fond of things and I don't have any hobbies that require special equipment.
I like coffee and good food and magnesium salt in my bath :-) but all of these come and go away so I don't consider them to be possessions.
Oh! Now something come to my mind! It's a 50 years old Teddy bear that my mum got when she was 5 and he was my favourite toy, too! His name is Mishko (little Michael). I almost forgot about him because I haven't seen him for ages! But yes, I would definitely save him in case of fire right after family, pets and important documents. He definitely is more valuable than my memory box.
