New Billy the Kid photograph is worth $5 million

Described as the "Holy Grail" of photography, a new photo said to be of Billy the Kid (aka William H Bonney) has surfaced, and will be sold by California dealer Kagin's. It can be yours for only $5 million!

The photo was taken as Billy was playing croquet with a group of Lincoln County Regulators, an American old west deputized posse that fought in the Lincoln County War.
Kevin Costner will narrate and produce a two-hour documentary for National Geographic Channel, covering Western Americana enthusiast Randy Guijarro’ s odyssey to authenticate this unique photograph. The program airs October 18th.
But just in case you can't afford the 5 mill that it will take to purchase this priceless artifact, you can still get yourself a tshirt with a Billy the Kid quote, at Amazon.
