When the Titanic sank over 100 years ago, not everyone survived. Hundreds of lives were lost in the icy cold waters of the Atlantic, and it was a tragedy that wouldn’t soon be forgotten. However, one rare lighthearted facet of the ship’s demise is what was found in a survival kit in a rescued lifeboat: A cracker that survived the crash, and has lasted 103 years since.
It’s the most valuable cracker on the planet, called the “Spillers and Bakers Pilot” biscuit. It’s hard to believe that something like this could survive for this long, a no-longer-edible relic of a time that was long ago but not forgotten. It’s nothing more than flour and water, but it will likely auction for thousands of dollars this month.
