Titanic memorabilia

The Titanic may have sunk almost a century ago but bits and pieces from the wreck are still being recovered. The latest find is an unused lifejacket from the doomed ship, which is to be auctioned off. Though stained and torn, the cork-filled jacket is mostly intact and is said to be have found by a farmer near the Halifax coast. It is estimated that the life preserver will sell for $40,000 but another had been sold for $60,000 last year. According to a specialist, the cork that filled the jackets was so heavy that many survivors broke their jaws when jumping from the ship.
