The Acquirement lottery

We've been discussing Scrolls of Acquirement a little of late and it's got me wondering - what is the best/worst item ever received from one of these? To me, they're a bit like Angband's lottery tickets - you have a brief feeling of hope when you get one, almost always followed by disappointment.
My best ever scroll produced Anarion. Needless to say death followed swiftly. Several tie for the worst by giving me weapons of slay foo. How about you? Ever get something truly amazing/dismal?

In my current Entro game, Acquirement in the early 40's produced Isildur.

That's probably the best it's ever done for me. I've gotten my share of Lucerne hammers of Slay Animal.

It modifies constitution and stealth. It provides resistance to acid,
poison, fear, powerful confusion, shards and disenchantment. It
protects you from the effects of poison, cuts and confusion. It gives
its wielder regeneration.

Worst ever was in FAA - I got a randart helm and was understandably excited - a scroll of *ID* revealed that its powers were:

RLight


That was it - not even the +1 to light radius that I would have got from a Helm of Light...

Worst I ever got was a bare dagger, but I didn't really understand the scrolls at the time.

Best was probably Bard at around lvl 50-60, in Sang.

Best: Soulkeeper

Most hilarious: The gloves of fire and ice which provided, of course, lightning and acid resist.

I've gotten *many* shields/armours of resist acid/lightning/fire/cold. Totally and utterly useless at the point ?Acquirement can even be found.

Can't remember the best one.. But I don't count too much on those scrolls.

Score! Elven Cloak of Freezing (+4 stealth) from a ?Acq, dropped by a Ghost on level 33.
(This is Entro.)
