Tintype identified and acquired by William L. Schafer on March 29, 2021. A second look at the ferrotype and you can see that the two seated brothers have rifles concealed under their coats.
William Schafer, self proclaimed ‘tintype whisperer’ has allegedly discovered tintypes of William Henry McCarty aka Billy the Kid and his extended family including those of his Mother, Father, Brother, Sister, Grandmother, and aunt. His other discoveries include a large hand tinted Solar CDV of Pat garrett, Jesse james, George Herman Ruth, Dave Rudabaugh. He has acquired images he believes are of Billy the Kid post alleged death with evidence supporting the theory that Pat Garrett assisted him in faking his death. Strangest of all is his claim to have discovered a 19th century tintype of Barron Trump, the former Presidents son.
