Nearly a century after the April 15, 1912, sinking of the ocean liner that hit an iceberg in the North Atlantic, a New York City auction is being readied by Guernsey’s Auctioneers & Brokers.
The auction house has sold prized Beatles photos, famous jewels of the late Princess Diana and beloved Jerry Garcia guitars. But Guernsey’s President Arlan Ettinger calls this the most significant auction they’ve ever handled.
"Who on this planet doesn’t know the story of the Titanic and isn’t fascinated by it?" he asked.
