Next month marks the centennial of the sinking of the Titanic. A collection of more than 5,500 objects amassed during seven expeditions to the site is up for sale. Items range from binoculars and tea cups to a giant slab of the ship's hull. The collection has been appraised at $189 million. David Greene talks to Arlen Ettinger, president of Guernsey's, the auction house managing the sale.
