Titanic Artifacts

Now lying at the bottom of the Atlantic ocean, the RMS Titanic was though to be an unsinkable vessel. The apex of craftsmanship and grandeur at her time, the ship was the largest and most luxurious steam liner avaialable. When it struck an iceberg on April 14, 1912 four days into its maiden voyage, a historic tragedy was born. A death count of 1,517, traumatizing effects, and a disaster that would live on forever became the Titanic’s legacy. Throughout the years, many Titanic artifacts have been recovered from the wreck and are among the most desired collectibles known. Most artifacts from the Titanic can be seen at the National Maritime Museum, but some have been sold to private collectors for a hefty sum of money. Here are some of the most unique Titanic artifacts ever discovered in the few expeditions to the fallen vessel.
