Is this the world's most expensive biscuit?

A biscuit that was on the Titanic is being auctioned off in Wiltshire - and is expected to fetch up to £10,000.

Originally part of a survival kit on the ill-fated ship's lifeboats, it is being sold along with a collection of photographs from the rescue of Titanic survivors, kept by a direct descendant of the Fenwicks. They were a newlywed couple whose honeymoon journey on the SS Carpathia was cut short when it took a detour to save lives. The biscuit was kept in a Kodak photographic envelope, complete with the original notation: "Pilot biscuit from Titanic lifeboat April 1912".

It will be auctioned off in Devizes on October 24th.
