Letter: Valuable antique

Sir: My husband owns a piece of elephant dung that he collected in Samburu, Kenya, in 1960. It resides under a glass dome on our sitting room shelves. Is this the oldest piece of elephant dung in existence, and, following the award of the Turner Prize to Chris Ofili, should we have it valued for insurance purposes?
