The Morphy auction took place 12 April 2019 in Las Vegas. Lot 1224, the supposed Cassidy tintype, is no longer posted, but you can find it in the original catalog, though the image clarity is poor:

The auction also included an equally hilarious lot 1273, a picnic-scene tintype supposedly including Doc Holliday -- who looks like Mr. Potato Head or Nosferatu, take your pick -- and Morgan Earp. This tintype is still online, not sure why, but on another website:

An enlarged version is here,

Leonardo DiCaprio aka Butch Cassidy is seated lower right.

Note that both tintypes are anomalistically displayed in daguerreotype cases, which is like putting a Thomas Kinkade in a baroque frame, a gilding of the lily that should ring a caveat-emptor bell.

Whether either tintype sold is unclear. Dan

          It's actually Leonardo DiCaprio and three amigos from the Titanic.
