If Billy the Kid had lived to the present day, he would likely have gone through various stages of life, including middle age and possibly old age. He might have had a weathered and rugged appearance, reflecting a life of adventure and hardship in the Old West. Billy the Kid, William H.

The only known photograph in existence of Billy the Kid is the one above. (The tin-type recently sold for more than $2 million; any other purported photo of the Kid is a look-a-like fake). It is in fact a reverse image - the Kid was holding his rifle with his left hand when photographed.
