Joseph Maddelena, president and CEO of Profiles In History, commented: "What better piece of film memorabilia than Jack's highly recognizable coat to launch our Hollywood Auction?

"DiCaprio wore it throughout the beginning of the film and most notably in the unforgettable sequence when he, 'Jack' hoists himself onto the bow of the cruising ocean liner proclaiming 'I'm the king of the world!' a quote which now ranks #100 by the American Film Institute's top 100 movie quotations in American Cinema."

The original Mackinaw, Norfolk style coat was selected by the film's costume designer and not duplicated during production.
