Billy The Kid -farrotype photo
I was reading the new NRA mag I got in the mail and in the technical dept someone had asked about Billy the kid being left handed and how he is really right handed and the ferrotype photo is mirrored which by itself is fascinating and being the ONLY picture of him in existence just adds to the legend.
This is the amazing part “quoted from Wikipedia”
“ The ferrotype sold at auction on June 25, 2011, in a three-day Western show. It was purchased for 2.3 million dollars, some six times the estimate. It was the most expensive piece ever sold at Brian Lebel's Annual Old West Show & Auction, and the 6th most expensive photograph ever sold.”
The old west has always been a fascination of many but 2.3 million dollars makes you wonder if/when it sold again what will it be sold for and to whom?
