Today at an antique show in Liberty, NC, I was amazed to see two items for sell at a price of $65,000. In a large shadow box was some reproduction Titanic postcards and other reproduction paper items which the dealer acknowledged was reproductions. However, the items that caught my eye was a metal bar that was rectangular in shape kind of like a crow bar. It had Titanic stamped on it (seems like all the fake stuff has Titanic stamped on it). The dealer said it was a davit or rope tool that was used when postioning the lifeboats. The other item was an officers hat that he said was given to an eight year old girl whose mother went down with the ship. He said teh hat was placed on the girls head as she was put into a lifeboat. There is no writing on the cap. I asked the girls name and he said Jean Hippach. I knew right away he had gotten the age wrong and that Jeans mother had not went down with the Titanic. These antique dealers need to do their research on these things before they try to rip people off. Anybody have any comments on the davit/rope tool?
