LONDON (AP) – A corroded iron key to a locker on the Titanic has sold at
auction for $104,000 by Henry Aldridge & Son in Devizes, western England
The key belonged to Sidney Sedunary, a 23-year-old ship’s steward. He was
one of the 1,500 people who died when the state-of-the-art passenger liner
stuck an iceberg and sank August 15,1912 during its maiden voyage from
England to New York.
The key, attached to a brass tag stamped "Locker 14 F Deck," was sent to
Sedunary’s pregnant widow after his body was recovered. Prices for Titanic
artifacts have soared in recent years.
