    I used to have a key-ring marked 'Captain's Office - SS Titanic' At lot of phoney and/or jokey replicas were made when the wreck was finally discovered.

    It was RMS Titanic

    RMS = Royal Mail Ship - given to ships which. you've guessed, carried the mail

    SS = Steamship - given to all other merchant ships

    HMS = His/Her Majesty's Ship - only given to ships of the Royal Navy

    Was there a picture of a naked lady inside it? DUH! There's no such place as "Captains Office" and it was RMS Titanic. SS Titanic would be like the SS Minnow, junk and the red felt would have to be some really heavy duty stuff to still exist.

    Actually, the ship was the RMS Titantic, so I would guess this was a reproduction of something or another or just something made to be sold

    It might be fake but it would still be pretty awesome if you took it somewhere- and have it looked at... Then rather than someone's opinion, you could have a real answer! Smile and Happy New Year!!

    Go to this Titanic website and post your question. You'll likely get better information.

    Incidently, SS means steamship and she was also refer to as such.
