authentic tintype photo thought to be the earliest known photo of
legendary outlaw Jesse James at the young age of 14. After the
image was authenticated by forensic experts, it may now be

Justin Whiting with his rare photo of Wild West outlaw Jesse James. See SWNS story SWJESSE; An eBay fan hit the jackpot when a photograph he picked up on the site for just seven pounds is now said to be worth a whopping two million. Justin Whiting, 45, was astonished when forensic experts confirmed his picture of infamous Wild West outlaw Jesse James was genuine and could sell for six figures. Single Justin, from Spalding, Lincs, said: “Anything is possible on eBay so I kept buying the odd photograph for a few quid, like other people would buy a lottery ticket. “I noticed the picture for sale - it was ten dollars. It was a bit blurry on the site but when I got it, it was a lot clearer.
