No idea about the worth. If it was genuine, it would be the last photo ever taken of the Titanic. What would make it even rarer is that its in the open sea on its maiden voyage to New York. Through an auction house, it could fetch possibly up to $10,000 if not more. However I could be wrong. I never watch these type of auctions as they're WAY out of my price range.

Currently moderators have moderator access to all forums and threads on the board. I've edited the photo out of the thread so you can repost with a watermarked image.

I'm still intrigued by the "headless" man. As Daniel pointed out, he was probably adjusting his camera or something. I'd like to think it was something far more sinister. I don't know what yet though. I'll have a ponder...
