Slight Water Damage, Never Worn

An unused life jacket from the ill-fated Titanic sold for $68,500 in New York Wednesday, according to Christie's auction house.

It apparently was discovered on the Halifax shoreline after the ship sank off Newfoundland in 1912.

Unused Titanic lifejacket at auction -- $68,500.00. Having it on when the Titanic sunk -- priceless.

I suppose, living very close to Halifax, I should pay more attention to the news, but dang, it depresses me mostly. I do watch during hurricane season since Juan kicked our arses.
