$2 Junk Shop Photo Turns Out To Be Worth $5,000,000


A man named Randy Guijarro in Fresno, California, found and purchased an old tintype photo for $2 at a junk shop, nothing special about it you would think. But it turns out that this photo is worth up to $5,000,000, because it’s a rare authenticated picture of the famous outlaw Billy the Kid.


Kagin’s, the Western American experts, verified the find and it took them over a year of investigation, comparing and verifying. But the results were clear: this 4×5-inch tintype is authentic and really shows Billy the Kid and members from his gang, The Regulators, playing croquet in the summer of 1878. This makes this $2 junk shop photo suddenly one of the most expensive photograph ever.
