A 103-year old cracker from the Titanic will be auctioned. I hear it tastes like Kate Winslet.
A cracker salvaged from a survival kit aboard one of the Titanic's lifeboats is going up for auction later this month and expected to fetch up to $15,000. Apparently because there are people out there who can predict what a cracker from a 100 year old shipwreck is actually worth.
The Spillers and Bakers "Pilot" biscuit was recovered from a survival kit stored within one of the ill-fated ocean liner's lifeboats. James Fenwick, a voyager onboard the SS Carpathia - which went to the aid of survivors - preserved the edible. He put the sweet snack in a Kodak photographic envelope complete with the original note, which stated "Pilot biscuit from Titanic lifeboat April 1912″.
An amazing find, since so many crackers went down with the Titanic. (See what I did there?)
