Titanic-related artifacts coming to a NYC auction, includes original ticket to the launch
NEW YORK (AP) ' An admission ticket to the launch of the Titanic is among dozens of artifacts heading to a New York City auction on the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the luxury liner.
Bonhams is offering the selection of documents and objects on April 15. That day, in 1912, the Titanic sank on its maiden voyage from Southampton, England, to New York City.
All the artifacts relate to either the crew or the passengers onboard the ship.
The auction house says the launch ticket is the only known example to still have the admittance stub attached. Its pre-sale estimate is $50,000 to $70,000.
Another highlight is an account written by the captain of the Carpathia, which helped rescue survivors. It's expected to fetch up to $120,000.
