Billy-the-Kid-photo for auction

A newly discovered photo, showing the famed outlaw Billy the Kid playing croquet at a wedding in 1878, has led to another mysterious image, also purchased at a thrift store, that may depict the gunman sitting with his killer.

An auction house in October verified that the croquet photo bought for just two dollars at a Fresno California junk shop contained legendary American Old West outlaw Billy the Kid, and could fetch $5 million at auction.

What luck, huh?

Now, attorney Frank Abrams believes that a 3¼-by-3-inch tintype he bought at a flea market in North Carolina might depict both Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett, the sheriff who killed the notorious outlaw in Fort Sumner in 1881.
