Posted: Updated:

LONDON (AP) - A corroded iron key to a locker on the Titanic has sold at auction for $104,000.

The key belonged to Sidney Sedunary, a 23-year-old ship's steward. He was one of the 1,500 people who died when the state-of-the-art passenger liner struck an iceberg and sank during its maiden voyage from England to New York.

The key, attached to a brass tag stamped "Locker 14 F Deck," was sent to Sedunary's pregnant widow after his body was recovered.
