---No more a server birth than empty fruit baskets, unfortunately. They actively spawn in dungeons, covetous is one that comes to mind off the top of my head, and are locked down but periodically you can find one that has spawned janky enough that it can be unlocked by placing something under it and removing it. Cool piece of deco nonetheless.
I don't understand the point of this, what exactly is this showing? You can eat the mushrooms in cove? They have always been edible.A quick trip into Covetous:

These items weren't serverbirths, they are naturally spawning food sources found in the depths of dungeons. Are they common? Nope, but they are long forgotten as people don't run dungeons the way they used to back then.
I had a large collection of sbs until they began reusing the graphics on other items, at which point I decided to sell and stop collecting. Still have some but most of my sbs are long gone.I owned several of these over the years. I stand by my statement as well. There are server birth mushrooms and non server birth mushrooms. Both have the exact same tag. I have 2 or 3 of them on one of my accounts. I am not saying that yours is not a server birth. I was just saying that they were able to be acquired by other means after server birth. And I was not trying to hurt your sale. These still have value.
(this nest part is speaking in broad terms about rares in general)
There are a lot of rares out there that were originally only server birth. Some of them were created by exploits, some were available during invasions and shard wide ARCs. I have played off and on since beta. I have been collecting rares since the beginning. Recently I was informed of a couple of items that were originally server birth items that spawned during an event and were obtainable. One was tarot cards which supposedly spawned during a Trinsic invasion. The other was a Bamboo Stool that was obtainable during the Ricardo ARC. Though I have not been able to verify either, the person who told me had no reason to lie or make it up.
Duping is also a thing that does not always devalue rares. Everyone knows that certain items were duped heavily. And yet, many people have no issue paying full high prices for them. I am sure no one needs a list of those items.
Sorry for hijacking your thread. I just want you to know I had no malice in my reply to your post.
The old picture was showing you that they've spawned forever. There is also an interview of the old developers where they go into detail about the ecosystem they were attempting to create but failed and listing the importance of food in old Ultimas, how they attempted to reproduce it in UO and specifically stated mushrooms being an edible that spawned in dark, dank caves/dungeons.They actively spawn in dungeons, covetous is one that comes to mind off the top of my head, and are locked down but periodically you can find one that has spawned janky enough that it can be unlocked by placing something under it and removing it.
