Titanic-violin_2509384b A violin believed to have been played on the Titanic before it sank was auctioned to an anonymous buyer for $1.6 million on Saturday (October 19th) in Britain, which is a world record for an artifact from the doomed ship. The violin, which is now unplayable because of damage from the ocean water, is thought to have belonged to bandmaster Wallace Hartley, who famously continued playing “Nearer, My God, To Thee” on the Titanic’s deck with his fellow musicians as the ship was sinking. The violin, which was a gift from Hartley’s fiancee and has his name on it, is believed to have been found at sea with his body more than a week after the Titanic sank.
