Best townsperson drop?

A battle-scarred veteran just dropped a dagger of venom (!!). What is the best drop you've seen in town (from a towny -- not Maggot, Santa, etc.).

Back in the days when Polymorph Other could generate any non-unique monster, I used to spend absurd amounts of time in the town turning townsfolk into nasties and then killing them. I think I got a Holy Avenger dagger from a great wyrm in the town once.

(This was not the brightest strategy in the world for any number of reasons, but hell, I didn't know that, and I was having fun)

What are the limitations on current polymorph?

It only generates monsters of similar level to the target monster. Which means that when you polymorph townspeople, you just get giant white centipedes, small kobolds, grey mushroom patches, etc. I don't think you get other townspeople, strangely enough. But it's been ages since I tried.
