A violin believed to have been played on the Titanic before it sank, has been sold for more that $1.9 million NZD.
The instrument is now unplayable due to water damage but was believed to be owned by bandmaster Wallace Hartley, who was among the disaster’s more than 1,500 victims.
The story of Hartley’s band, which continued playing on the ship’s deck until the disaster’s final hour, is a memorable part of James Cameron’s “Titanic”  movie.
Many experts believe that this price will not be beaten for sometime.
The violin has been subject to numerous tests to check its authenticity since it was discovered in 2006.
