Recent Robert E. Lee Photo Auction Skyrockets

Yesterday, The Washington Post published a story about the recent auction of a Robert E. Lee photo on the Goodwill Industries Web site.

The price of the “photo” skyrocketed, with the final winning bid at $23,000, but experts suggest that the item may just be a copy of an original engraving, which would only make it worth about $1,000.

Check out the rest of the story to see why the auction winner is not too disappointed by the price he paid for what may only be a copy.

  1. Interesting! I love how the buyer isn’t concerned because he believes he made a donation to a worthy cause. At least he won’t regret it if it turns out to be a copy.
