While we’re all pretty aware that the craziest things can sell for ridiculous amounts of money, we’re never ceased to be amazed by exactly what those crazy things are. This week- the world’s most expensive cracker is valued to be worth as much as $18,000.
If you’re thinking to yourself- if a cracker is worth $18,000 it better have come from the Titanic or something- you’d be right.
This high-priced 3.5 by 4 inches cracker is 103-years-old and came from a survival kit used on one of the lifeboats that survived the historic sinking of the Titanic.
And get this- while there were many other valuables in the survival kit of honeymooners James and Mabel Fenwick including journals and photographs- the cracker is thought to be the most valuable.
Worth $1,092 per square inch according to to The New York Daily News, it’s value is allegedly from being the last of its kind- we also think surviving the massive sinking of the Titanic and somehow being kept in tact for over a century might have something to do with it, too.
The cracker will be auctioned off to one lucky snack-lover later this month.
