Original Photo Of A Young Billy The Kid?:
I may have found an original, tintype photograph of a young Billy the Kid. I am being up front when I say I know very little about these kind of things but the photo speaks for itself. I instantly saw it was likely an original photo of a young William H. Bonney. The ears, eyes, nose, chin, mouth, etc. are all spot on.
I don't have the slightest idea of what it's worth if proven true, but I'm sure it's significant. I also don't know the first thing on who actually determines these kind of things. I'll leave that up to the buyer. The picture is nearly flawless. The glass on top of the picture is a little dirty on the underside but I didn't want to take it apart to clean it. The case has wear and tear and is in two pieces per the pictures. Please make sure you do your research first as this sale will be final. Thank you and I hope to see this in the news some day as the clearest discovered picture of the infamous Billy the Kid!
