A bank note apparently recovered from the body of Wild West outlaw Billy the Kid has emerged for sale 136 years after he was shot.<br />
<br />
The note, which is said to be in poor condition, was issued between 1874-1876 - at last five years before Billy the Kid was shot and killed by his former friend Pat Garrett in New Mexico.<br />
<br />
The note was somehow acquired by a British man on his travels to America in the 1980s. It was found in a drawer in his bedroom by his granddaughter during a clear out. <br />
<br />
East Bristol Auctions are now selling it.
