Titanic life jacket auctioned

Somehow there still was a life jacket from the doomed ship a.k.a. the Titanic remaining and it’s come under the hammer at Christie’s auction house. This one was supposed to have been found by a farmer by the name of John James Dunbar on the shores of Halifax. The number of items auctioned from the Titanic is going up and is likely to go even higher in number since these things just keep appearing from somewhere or the other bringing back memories of the fateful ship that took so many lives in 1912. The cork filling the jackets used we so heavy that it broke the jaws of some of those who jumped into the water wearing them.

This one can fetch anything between £30,620 ($60,000) to £40,828 ($80,000).
