    Arthur Rostron's sextant
    From: Paul Hirose

    A sextant once owned by Sir Arthur Rostron, skipper of Carpathia when
    she rescued Titanic survivors, has been sold for about $97,000. The
    auction was actually four years ago, but maybe I'm not the only one who
    had not heard about it.

    Several more photos here, but (at least with the Firefox browser) I
    can't get them to enlarge:
