Description
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

Thank-You Dennis. Out of all the auctions that I have ever had, Your comment has to be the most sincere and kindest of them all. And with that, I am definitely glad I put up this auction. Austin

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.

Aaww...... Thank-You so VERY much. This has got to be the most nicest comment anyone could ever receive. Wow...! I still don't know what to say, You have me speechless....
I just treat people the way I want to be treated and offer the best items I can. I am fair and honest both as a seller and a buyer. And I always take in consideration that 1- People has feelings and 2-Everyone (Including Myself) Isn't rich. And to me, That is what makes Listia fun. Austin

Thank-You.... I always try to answer everyone's questions and/or comments. I have been to some auctions here on Listia and it was almost like the seller abandoned all the buyers' leaving no answers to questions or even good descriptions of the item and I am very leary of auctions like that no matter how nice the item was.
Also, As far as my auctions... I like to put up nice and unique things that gives the average person-such as myself, A chance to really have something. Things that they can show their friends or family that make really great conversation pieces, hard-to-find pieces, or even just try to give a good deal. I try to give people things that I personally would like to receive out of an auction if that makes sense, Not junk or broken items.... And I also believe the better you treat people it goes 2 ways, 1- They will come back or 2- You never know that you may win one of their auctions. So you always (this is just my outlook) just respect people and their feelings. But for me, Its not just about the credits either, I also enjoy the comments and surfing Listia at the same time. I just wish everyone was as nice as most of the people on my past couple auctions... But then again, With out all the bad apples... You never know there are good ones out there. Well, I tend to Ramble sometimes so I want to say thank you again and yes I fanned back. Austin

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. :)

Well, I do it for 2 reasons actually.
1st: It gives people a chance to have something nice and unique for the average person like myself.
2nd: I like listing different kinds of things, Things that I would look for to purchase that isn't junk as well as I need credits too so I can buy things off the site. With the credits, It helps support other Listians' auctions. So credits are really just one big circle.
It is a gamble for me as well, As far for listing items. Example: I placed an auction (Going on now) and it is a big auction with all sorts of odds and ends.... Well, I am not really getting the credits that I should be getting "considering" what all is in the auction.
So, I hope this answered your question. Thanks for asking and no I did not take offense at all.

Thanks David, That is so nice of you to say. It is actually a priceless piece when you think about it. Well to me anyways. When you think of the horrors that night with the freezing waters and the lost lives. And this artifact sat in the bottom of those dark waters dor decades... What makes it that much better for me is, There was no way that I could swim and get it myself, But yet I had the chance to get it and that is why I am offering it. This isn't a sales pitch, But its true and that is part of my fascination with the Titanic and its relics.

Unfortunately mememefree is right, it's a rather unique item, however, not as rare as one might think. One can go on the titanicstore.com to buy the same thing. Not to offend Schindler77; I think this is a wonderful item!

Thanks. It actually amazes me when I personally think about it. Was someone holding this piece of coal right before the Titanic was sinking? Or even yet.... It came from an actual shipwreck item that claimed 1,500 lives. I think about the History behind items and antiques and the stories that they can tell. Out of all the Documentaries and the movies, I can say that I actually got to hold and have an actual piece of Titanic's History.

I love Historical artifacts. Even when I look at my antiques I think of all the places they have been or the people whose had them. Like antique china... I think about all the conversations and the stories that was told over each meal while people ate off them.

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 :-)

Aaww..... Thank-You so much for such a nice comment. I have always had such a passion and a fascination with The Titanic. I too have been to some of the museums and held some of the actual jewelry that was found. Oh, I wanted it sooooo bad. But most of it wasn't forsale and the pieces that was, I couldn't afford it if I lived 100 lifetimes. But I can say that for a moment in my life, I felt like I was worth over a million bucks. :) Of couse now I am still close to being a millionaire, I have all those zeros... I am just waiting for that one. :) Austin
