The 130-year-old tintype photograph is considered the most recognizable photo of Billy the Kid in existence. It was estimated to sell for between $300,000 and $400,000, but it ended up going for $2.3 million.”

    That’s one unfortunate hat. Now that I think about it, though: so is most cowboy hats.

    I bet you think the people who wear them are less intelligent than you are.

    You also have no idea how to spell or use proper grammar. Or is you, doing all this, on purpose, retard?

    pic is correct. Tintypes come out as a mirror image.

    He looks more white trash than redneck or cowboy to me.

    Fashions back then were weird, and from everywhere. When somebody went to the trouble to get their image taken- they dressed as fancy as they could. So, even though he does kind of look like a hobo- he was dressed to the nines. I imagine if it were in color, we’d get a better idea how fancy he was. Chicks really dug him- and he was a real popular guy.
