LONDON (AP) –  A violin believed to have played on the Titanic before the doomed vessel sank on April 15, 1912, was auctioned for more than $1.6 million Saturday, a fantastic figure which one collector said may never be beaten.

The sea-corroded instrument, now unplayable, is thought to have once belonged to
bandmaster Wallace Hartley who was among the disaster’s more than 1,500 victims.
