    Old as in the object itself is old ? Then, probably photos my grand parents took when they were young.

    Or the object in my possession for the longest time ? Then, my body ?

    I have a little plush mouse my mother made me when I was around 5. After that I started making my own plushies etc at the age of 5-6 and nowadays I make stuff out of leather. So that mouse is special to me.

    this tiny teddy bear that i was trying to buy when i was a kid, but didn't have enough money for. a stranger bought it for me. i don't even remember the face or even the gender of the stranger but it's a small act of kindness i like to be reminded of...probably at least 20 years old at this point

    Yes, they are being used, even by Apple and Google (although they are no longer allowing you to add new ones or set those up if you create a new account. Many large enterprise websites (think older banking websites, large store chains) are slow to adopt modern security mechanisms and are still using these.

    Out of the tens of thousands of online accounts, one can have I am pretty sure you never had to sign up for more than a thousand, so one's own experience is a bad measure of a security question being used or not.
    In theory it is a good enough security question, since it is not trivial to guess, but security questions are

    My house is 124 years old, from 1897, so I´d say that.

    However, it is renovated and far more modern than many current houses as we have a smart house system and the kitchen is sort of state of art design =o

    Off the top of my head, some silver spoons from 1794 that have been in the family since then, that I now have. Also a walnut box from sometime during the late 1700s that has also been in the family since then.

    I have a cast-iron skillet owned by great great great grandmother. It's over 100 years old.

    That would probably be my killer whale plush. Had it since I was a very wee lad. I don't even remember who gave it me (probably parents), where, or how I got it. All I know is that I used to be basically obsessed with the movie Free Willy back then, watching the original movie several times so maybe that had something to do with it.

    I also have this small white "beanie baby" type rabbit plush. Was also something I've had all my life basically.

    My first guitar, a Gibson Acoustic given to me by my father when i was 8. He has passed now and im 53, its the most valuable possession I own, not because its worth money, but because the memories are priceless.
