    Over 94 years after being recovered from Woody's body, on November 11, 2006 Woody's water stained Acacia Lodge No. 16 dues card finally made its way back to Virginia and is currently on display at the Grand Lodge of Virginia Museum in Richmond Virginia. Note the trowel over the Square and Compasses, it is signed the Worshipful D. W. Buckley, Secretary. Also in the museum display case next to his dues card are one of these Masonic Titanic lapel pins and one of these collector Masonic Titanic Coins.

    RMS Titanic Inc., the company that basically "owns" the shipwreck sold small pieces of coal they recovered. It came with a display case and a certificate of authenticity. You can still find pieces on Ebay.

    I think it was around $50.
