This chapter examines if the three artifacts bearing labels identifying them as part of the Titanic are really from that ill-fated ship. The first was a piece of shaped, partially painted wood labelled as part of a panel from the wreckage ship Titanic. The second was a smaller block of wood labelled as part of door from the wreckage ship Titanic. The third was a metal nut and bolt to which was tied a paper tag labelled Bolt from Companionway from wreckage of Str. Titanic. The various details provided credible testimony that the artifacts were what they purported to — relics of the wreckage from the 1912 Titanic disaster, picked up by the cable steamer Minia and labelled in a manner that gave them the impress of time.
