Hindenburg Lowenbrau beer bottle to make $9,700?

The beer bottle was discovered in the
wreck of the Hindenburg
     

A bottle of Lowenbrau beer salvaged from the wreck of the Hindenburg is to auction at Wallis & Wallis in Lewes, UK on November 27 with a £6,000 ($9,714) estimate.

It is believed to have been discovered by a fireman at the scene of the disaster.

The lot will be sold alongside a piece of material from the Zeppelin, a scrap of the German flag and a letter from a secretary of the German consulate who was present at the scene.

The accident occurred in 1937, when the airship, attempting to dock in Lakehurst, New Jersey, exploded into flames.

Herbert "Herb" Morrison was covering the event, leading to his hysterical report that featured the famous cry of "Oh, the humanity!"
