LONDON: The "world's most valuable biscuit", which survived the sinking of the Titanic in 1912, has fetched a whopping 15,000 pounds at an auction in the UK, while a photograph believed to be that of the iceberg which sank the liner sold for 21,000 pounds.
The Spillers and Bakers Pilot cracker, from a survival kit in a lifeboat, was "the world's most valuable biscuit," said Auctioneer Andrew Aldridge from Henry Aldridge & Son auctioneers in Wiltshire.
The biscuit was sold to a collector in Greece, far exceeding its presale estimate of between 8,000 pounds and 10,000 pounds.
Madness. What else can you say to this bizarre act?
Just shows that there is no shortage of idiots with money in this world
The economy has failed in Greece and some Grecian is wasting money. Maybe this moron is somehow responsible for the Grecian economic failure ...
Give those biscuits to dog.
If you have earned the money no harm spending it on ur self.....I had glass of vintage wine(100 years old) at $1000 for a glass

A treasure trove indeed
