Titanic Artifacts To Go To Highest Bidder At 100-Year Anniversary Auction: Who Will Buy $189 Million Collection?

The Titanic sank on April 15, 1912 after hitting an iceberg on its maiden voyage from England to the United States, killing over 1,500 of its 2,200 passengers on board. As the 100-year anniversary draws near, interest in the ship is peaking.

The bidding for the largest ever sale of Titanic artifacts closed on Monday and the winner is set to be announced at a press conference on April 11. The auction contains more than 5,500 items recovered between 1987 and 2004 from the final resting place of the Titanic, over 12,000 feet below the Atlantic Ocean.
