A British auctioneer says that a first class menu from the Titanic's last lunch has sold for about 76,000 pounds.

The menu, kept by prominent San Francisco banker Washington Dodge, bears the date April 14, the day in 1912 that the reputedly unsinkable ship hit an iceberg and fell to the bottom of the Atlantic.

The England-based auctioneer says the menu is one of the "rarest items of Titanic memorabilia to be sold in recent years," adding it made its way off the ship in the banker's wife's purse.

A set of keys from the ship were also sold yesterday for 59,000 pounds.
