A guy once lost 9.000 BTC by restoring a backup produced before a send transaction which had these 9.000 as input. That motivated Satoshi to implement the pool of addresses feature.
EDIT: Here's the topic: http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=782.0
Looking back at that, he still had 1 btc. So...

How about the 50 from the duplicate generation in blocks 91812 and 91842?

1007-1009 Somewhere around there.

Don't ask. Too painful of a story.

Not 100% sure, but looked like we lost a block probably due to default jgarzik's pool not retrying re-submiting work when bitcoind was unreachable...

Oh well. Fortunately no one else was mining at that moment. It was a very short round too with just like 500 shares...  Undecided

Back in late 2009, I bought 1000 from NewLibertyStandard for about $1.

Not long after I formatted my hard drive and didn't bother with them saving them...

Yeah I know.  What an idiot.

I just clicked back through the chain until I saw a 9000 -> 8999 + 1 transaction around the right date.

i assume u did this in Block Explorer.  just went there and they only have the last 20 or so blocks listed?  how'd u search further back?  also how did u know what date the block got solved?

You can click all the way back to the genesis block by using the Previous Block links.  Stone Man posted about the loss here on the forums the next day.

That's what I said above... (maybe I should have dropped the dot or write 9.000,00 to make it clearer)
