(London Guardian) What could be the world's most valuable biscuit, which survived the sinking of the Titanic more than a century ago, is to be sold at auction.
The Spillers and Bakers pilot biscuit – a type of cracker made from flour and water – survived the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 in which about 1,500 people died. It was part of a survival kit stored within one of the ill-fated ocean liner's lifeboats and was kept as a souvenir.
The biscuit will go under the hammer at Henry Aldridge & Son auctioneers in Devizes, Wiltshire, on 24 October and is estimated to fetch between £8,000 and £10,000.
