Anthracite Recovered From Boiler of Titanic – EX. RMS Titanic.

Encapsulated by CAG .

During the week of April 3-10, 1912, crew members and others prepared the RMS Titanic, the World's Largest Ship, for its scheduled April 10 departure from Southampton across the Atlantic to New York. During this week, crew members loaded supplies, 20 lifeboats, as well as state-of-the-art wooden deck chairs that outline the ship's 10 decks, including anthracite coal to power the massive engines. What was a joyous and record-setting day on April 10, 1912, at the Ocean Dock in Southampton as a small crowd of onlookers watched as the Titanic pulled slowly away from the ocean dock at the start of her maiden voyage. During the night of April 14, when the ship struck an iceberg, it immediately began to sink, snapping in two and becoming completely submerged within only hours. The tragedy claimed the lives of over 1,500 passengers who were reportedly throwing the ship's deck chairs and other buoyant articles overboard when only just over 700 members used up the 20 lifeboats.

Offered are anthracite coal pieces taken from the RMS Titanic, coming exclusively from the RMS Titanic, Inc. collection. The small pieces rested at the bottom of the ocean inside the boiler and stood as a testament to human engineering and the tragedy that befell the "Unsinkable Ship."
