World's most expensive biscuit?: sweet snack which survived Titanic sinking could sell for £10,000


Up for sale: the Spillers and Bakers "Pilot" biscuit which survived the sinking of the Titanic in 1912

A biscuit which survived the sinking of the Titanic more than 100 years ago could sell at auction for £10,000.

The Spillers and Bakers "Pilot" biscuit was rescued from a survival kit stored within one of the ill-fated ocean liner's lifeboats.

It was kept by James Fenwick, a passenger onboard the SS Carpathia, which went to the aid of survivors from the ship.

He put the sweet snack in a Kodak photographic envelope complete with the original note, which stated "Pilot biscuit from Titanic lifeboat April 1912".

The biscuit, valued at between £8,000-£10,000, is set to go under the hammer at Henry Aldridge & Son auctioneers in Devizes, Wiltshire on October 24.

Auctioneer Andrew Aldridge said. "It is the world's most valuable biscuit.

"There are no other Titanic lifeboat biscuits in existence to my knowledge.

"It is incredible that this biscuit has survived such a dramatic event."

The Titanic sank after striking an iceberg on April 14, 1912, during its maiden voyage to New York from Southampton, killing about 1,500 passengers and crew.
