If one collects an object as collateral, in the event that he sells it to pay back the loan, if the borrower needs the object, does the lender need to downgrade the object and leave the borrower with something more basic in its stead?  This is called mesadrim, which is a law learned in a case of erchin, valuations (when one promises the value of a person to the beit hamikdash).   Would the law also apply to hekdesh (a case where one promises the value of an object to the beit hamikdash).   The similarities and differences between these 3 cases are discussed.
