A water-stained menu of the last lunch served on the Titanic more than 80 years after the “unsinkable” ship did just that on its maiden voyage is expected to sell for at least $157,960 at a U.K. auction, reports Fox News.

The menu, which records the last lunch served to first-class passengers before the Titanic hit an ice floe and sank, is dated April 14, 1912. It was on the table of Dr. Washington Dodge, a banker traveling first class from San Francisco, accompanied by his wife, Ruth, and son, Washington Jr.

Ruth Dodge took the menu as a souvenir, placing it in her handbag. The relic has remained with the family ever since they survived the tragedy.

The lunch featured numerous courses, including egg, chicken, beef, grilled mutton chops, decadent desserts, and an assortment of eight cheeses.

Henry Aldridge and Son auction house will put the menu on the auction block March 31 at the annual spring Titanic sale in Bath, England.
