A man bought this photo for 2 dollars in a garage sale. He later found out it is one of the only portraits of Billy the Kid and his gang in New Mexico in 1878 (Billy is the one in the Middle playing cricket) and now this photo is valued in about 6 million dollars.

THE MOST FAMOUS TOMB

The seal of Tutankhamun’s tomb, intact after almost 3300 years. Although it is said that was Howard Carter who found it, in 1922, it was actually a ten years old kid who did it. He was carrying water to the explorers and tumbled with the stairs that lead to the tomb.
