I have found cars, antiques and equipment of all kinds. But as far as most valuable? Almost certainly this large piece of medical equipment on the top floor of a large hospital. Most of the other equipment in here had been removed long ago. But this behemoth stayed behind. I believe it was for doing CAT scans, or something similar.
A friends of mine works on machines like this for a living and is very familiar with this particular model. He told me when this was new it cost in the $1 million dollar range. It is a bit outdated now, at least here in North American. But it would be a very desirable piece of equipment for a developing nation.
Last I heard it had been broken and vandalized.
That's heartbreaking; it would have made a great living room conversation piece
There have been members here who thought along those lines... I wish I was joking
There was a art deco style xray control console the size of a coke machine at Pennhurst circa 1950s that was stunning as well functional.
They are rare finds now.
Leaving that to rot was heartbreaking.
I'll see if I can dredge up an image of it.

There was another place I went to that had this beautiful antique singer sewing machine and when I looked it up it was selling for about $1800. I went back a few months later and it was all smashed up. I'm not a person that goes into place to loot them, but man if I knew it was going to get destroyed, I would've possibly done something to prevent it.
Better it gets destroyed than you get charged with grand theft, a felony charge.
They have S/N on those machines...
Taking only images makes the mission a lot less complicated.
