An undated image made available Saturday Sept. 22, 2007 of the key to the binoculars store on the Titanic, which fetched 90,000 pounds (US$181,000/130,500 euro) at auctioneers Henry Aldridge in Devizes, southern England, Saturday. The key, marked with the tag "Crows Nest Telephone Titanic" was not on the ship when she set sail from Southampton on her maiden voyage on Wednesday April 10, 1912.
