A gentleman...that's the rumor! You failed to mention boyish good looks.
William, good to see you are doing your homework. I wold do the same. A small piece of wreckwood will be waiting for you.
Nope sorry, not the ball player from the 80's. Although I do collect his cards!
Tim - did you get the response to your email? It was "way" over my head, so not wanting to look too stupid, I forwarded it to a friend. btw...the engraving plate would be the mother load. I wish it was that. Many thanks!
Well I have attempted to purchase two Titanic items in the past week, got the coal on the way and have bid on Kevin's wood piece. I am hoping that this Titanic relic fever will subside before I end up with a whole shelf of it like I now have of Berlin Wall fragments
you left out one of the most popular items online today - the fake LOA or Cert. of Authenticity. Then again, most sellers of fakes do not stand behind any of their own claims or they have a no-return-policy already in place.

>>Is searched on their website but didn't find any information about it.<<
If it's no longer there, the smart money is that for whatever reason, they are no longer offering it. The stocks may be gone or they may be holding onto then against the time when the market demand will bring a higher price.
Dear members, I'm not much of a Titanic buff, but being interested in history as such and seeing that pieces of coal aren't that expensive, I though I might get one.
One fact makes me wonder though:
On ALL the pics one can see on either ebay or even the "official" Titanic Shop webpage is the same Lot-No.: Object No. 94/0036 I've seen that over many years (about 10) now, on objects of many different forms (necklace, keepsake etc) so I doubt it is a set of pic being re-used all the time.
Can it really be, that since about 10 years all those items come from the same lot?
I do hope there's still someone out there, as this thread has been quiet for so long.
I purchased back in 2012 a Centennial edition necklace off ebay along with a Titanic Coal coin.
The necklace is still in its sealed package and the certificate of authenticity bores the RMS Titanic Inc Corporate seal from Flordia. Like wise certificate states it was recovered during the 2000 Research and Recovery expedition, it weighs 2948.35 grams and the origin is South Wales Coal fields Six Bells Mine. Even has the signature of Arnie Geller and certificate number.
The coin how ever has a certification as well its in a "Highland Mint" box the certificate states registration number 03995/25,000. The interesting part is the inside of the folded certificate its the same as the necklace even down to the certificate number. So it could be fake but I highly doubt it considering the money I paid for it would have resulted in the seller losing money to fake this.
