X is my proudest possession.
Does it mean that X is "my most precious possession"? (an heirloom or an expensive painting, for example.)
Or is X more of a thing that makes me feel proud of? (like a medal I deservedly won or some personal trait.)
I imagine that these two senses overlap with each other.

    I wouldn't call something my proudest possession. Instead, I would go for the more awkward but accurate: "This is the possession I'm proudest of." Although personally, I don't think of being proud in relation to my possessions, but perhaps others do.
