Of All The Things To Survive The Titanic, A Biscuit?!? Find Out How Much It Sold For!

We’ve seen some historic items that survived the sinking of the Titanic fetch quite a lot of money at auctions recently — the lunch menu from the day the ship sank (which was connected to Lady Duff Gordon and the “Money Boat,”) and the violin played by Wallace Hartley (you might remember the heartbreaking scene from the movie) — but we never expected to see something as fragile as this survive. A “Spillers and Bakers Pilot” biscuit recently sold at an auction went for $23,000. The biscuit, which was part of a survival kit on one of the ship’s rescue boats, was bought by a collector in Greece. I’m guessing he won’t be eating it.
