The listing, ***** TITANIC <> TITANIC <> TITANIC ***** has ended.

Hello All,
I have up for Auction is a Genuine Piece Of Coal From The Titanic With A Certificate Of Authenticity. Also it has actually been registered by The RMS Titanic, INC in the Permanent Museum Log as being authentic.
It comes with a mirrored base with a protective dome to cover the display. There is a small crack on the dome, But it never bothered me because all I did was turn it around. It is not connected to the base at all, In fact you could even replace it easily. Other than that, Everything else is Perfect.
It comes with Two Framed Certificates: One is a Gallery Registration for the piece of coal and the other one is a Numbered And Signed Certificate Of Authenticity.

"On April 10 1912, The RMS Titanic embarked on its maiden voyage sailing from Southampton, England to New York City. One of the largest and most luxurious passenger liners at the time. The Titanic was also considered by many to be unsinkable. On April 14, The ship struck an iceberg, and early the next day it sank. About 1,500 people perished because of the tragedy and Titanic became the best-known ship in the world. After the 1985 discovery of its wreckage, interest in the famed liner only increased and 100 years after its sinking,The Titanic still remains a legend"

Picture 8: Edward J Smith-Titanic' Captain <born January 27,1850/died April 15,1912, at sea, northern Atlantic Ocean> At 2:20 AM on April 15 the Titanic sank, killing some 1,500 people. Smith was last seen on the bridge. A report that he saved a drowning child was largely dismissed. Smith's body was never found.
Picture9: Thomas Andrews- Designer of the Titanic <born February 7,1873/died April 15,1912, at sea, northern Atlantic Ocean> Andrews was reportedly last seen in the first-class smoking room, though some claimed that at the end he was on the deck, throwing chairs to those in the water. The Titanic sank on April 15 at approximately 2:20 AM. Andrews's body was never recovered.

Austin, I have read about 5 pages of comments about your awesome auction, the ones trying to degrade the auction or you, forget about or aren't able to see that it takes more than the amount of credits earned for someone to place an auction like this on Listia...it takes something that many others will never have and that is...it takes INTEGRITY... and COMPASSION for others to give up a treasure so someone else can enjoy it also. Austin, it is very nice & an honor to meet you, even though it is only on Listia. Dennis

I took the time to check out those oline stores where you can buy "real, official Titanic coal". Uh huh. No certificates, no paperwork, nada. And don't forget . . . even a couple that claim they have a certificate of authenticity looked like something you could put together if you were clever on a computer. I have watched many of Shindler's auctions, I've even researched some of his items, and he is a legitimate, honest seller. I was stunned when I saw this one . . . I thought his last one was so generous and rocked, but this is over the top! And he is right about something else: how often does the average person get a shot at something like this? The playing field is more level-if you can sell enough items and get enough credits it is literally free to you-if not, of course, you will have to pay Listia for them, but considering what kind of stuff I have seen on here that can go for high credits this is an investment, not a passing fancy. There will never be any more legitimate coal from the Titanic. Ever. There will ALWAYS be more gold jewelry and fancy makeup.

I'm NOT being mean or disrespecting you or your auction so please don't block me as I do plan to bid. I just have a simple question.

Why list this on Listia when you could possibly get A LOT of money for this. Don't get me wrong I LOVE see things like this on Listia, I'm just curious. Again, please don't block me I'm not being rude or hateful by any means. :)

This is awesome! The history and story behind the Titanic has amazed me since I first heard about it when I was around 6 years old. I've been to the Titanic museums in both Branson, MO and Las Vegas, NV and it is truly an amazing feeling to be surrounded by such story telling history. I hope whoever wins this appreciates it as much as it sounds like you do!!! Good luck :-)

I have this! It's a very cool artifact & a piece of history! It's a tragic story but, I feel like we're preserving a piece of history!
If anyone is hesitating, don't. It's real & it's worth quite a few $$!
