An original tintype photograph of Frank (sitting) and Jesse James (standing) taken just prior to Frank's enlistment in the Confederate Army (circa 1860/61) is one of several historic items expected to cause a bidding frenzy on July 31 at J. Levine Auction & Appraisal in Scottsdale, Arizona. The museum-quality find has been in the family of Edward Ziebarth for more than 100 years. (Ziebarth's Farm Museum in Adams County, Nebraska.) Josh Levine estimates its value to be between $40,000 and $60,000. Photo courtesy of J. Levine Auction & Appraisal. (PRNewsFoto/J. Levine Auction & Appraisal)
