Coal recovered from the wreckage of the RMS Titanic

About Titanic Coal...What is the time line and what are the differences?
When the Titanic Coal was first sold in the mid 1990's the pieces of coal were larger, about 1 inch pieces. Through the years, as the amount for sale kept dwindling, the pieces became smaller and smaller. Today (2014) the Titanic store is selling 1/4" pieces for $25.00 and 1/2" pieces for $45.00. You can check out their web store at this link...   http://www.thetitanicstore.com/ Currently the earlier day pieces are much more desirable because they are larger, with unique packaging.
90th   Anniversary Edition was in 2002
95th   Anniversary Edition was in 2007
100th Anniversary Edition was in 2012
Virtually everything that has been sold by the RMS Titanic organization has become limited edition because it was only sold for a short period of time, then changed or not ever sold again. Items are available in their store, at their exhibits or at their permanent Titanic buildings such as the one in Branson, Missouri

RMS Titanic
It was the beginning of the twentieth century, a time of optimism and progress. The transatlantic transport of passengers, cargo, and mail was brisk and competitive. In the spirit of this competition, managing director of the White Star Line, J. Bruce Ismay, engaged the Belfast shipbuilding company of Harland & Wolff to build three leviathans that would become the largest moving objects created by man.  The three Royal Mail Ships were to be called Olympic, Titanic, and Gigantic. (Not to tempt fate, later the Gigantic's name was changed to Britannic.)
The ships were to be virtually identical in size and structure, but Titanic was to be the true shining star.

The Titanic was one of the largest passenger cruise ship at its time in 1912. It was captained by Edward John Smith. It left England on April 10, 1912 and docked in France and Ireland before setting sail for New York. There were many immigrants on the ship from Ireland who were leaving for New York. She was powered by coal furnaces that were stocked at full heat during the voyage. There were reports of icebergs from other ships including the Caronia and the Baltic. The captain was pressured by Bruce Ismay, the chairman of the White Star Ship Lines to sail full speed ahead despite all the warnings to slow down. The ship struck an iceberg a few hours before April 15, 1912. She was hit on the side of the ship and she started to fill up with water. During this time, women and children are put into life rafts. The bottom of the interior of the ship filled up fast and tipped the boat vertically. It sunk to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean on April 15, 1912 at 2:30am.

RMS Titanic (named by J.Bruce Ismay), was built in March 1909. In May 1911, she was launched, in what was a heavily publicized spectacle.

Titanic was designed to be a marvel of modern safety technology and her accommodations were the most modern and luxurious on any ocean. She was 883 feet long (1/6 of a mile), 92 feet wide and weighed 46,328 tons. She was 104 feet tall from keel to bridge, almost 35 feet of which were below the waterline. She was capable of carrying over 3500 people. Unfortunately, at 11:40 p.m on the 14th April 1912, the greatest maritime disaster in history began. During that night of heroism, terror and tragedy, 705 lives were saved, 1502 lives were lost, and many legends were born.
