A tintype photograph of Confederate General Robert E. Lee is seen in an undated photo provided by the Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee. The tintype was sold by Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee on their online auction site, onlinegoodwill.com, for $23,001 dollars on Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2011. The old photo was spotted in a bin by a Goodwill worker who pulled it out and sent it to Goodwill's online operation. Manager Suzanne Kay-Pittman said on Thursday that the bin was headed to the outlet store where everything is sold by the pound. She estimated it would have gone for a dollar and change there.
