    Like Robert Lee ever had as off a hair day as this fellow, no doubt a very nice man with a terrific story, if we but knew- part of the problem with connecting someone to a famous name. 3000 bucks, forgot to look to see if there's free shipping.

    To be fair, no one is selling this as positively identified- it's one of those ' Maybe's, with question mark. For 3,000 bucks, you'd hope it would be at least his borrowed shoulder boards. Someone with more experience in photos please correct me, but have not previously run into a head scratcher Lee photo. It's generally a kinda-sorta-maybe- and for 10K better be Lincoln.

    As ever, the worst feature would be who is he and what was his story? Gets lost in these scrambles for famous folks.

    In today's vernacular, I can only say: "NOT"!

    p.s. Anyone at anytime can have a bad hair day, I guess.
