What is the most valuable thing you've put in a cache? in General geocaching topics Posted December 4, 2002 I work for a large consulting company ("delivering results that endure"). Ocassionally they throw you a nice plaque for a job well done ... it usually comes with a gift certificate worth about $50 redeemable at the company store. I've used three of these such occasions to "purchase" a fossil watch, a cool cross pen, and a pull-over jacket. I've placed them in three different caches of mine with specific instruction that the finder need not trade for them ... that they are finder's prizes. In most cases, people have left nicer than normal trade items but nothing you don't occasionally see in caches anyway. I wouldn't expect people to trade up for such items, especially because they have my employer's name on them and I didn't pay for them myself.
