    You owe me one new computer screen, the old one is full of red wine now :errm:

    ...though I do have to agree that the similarity to that photo of Nicolas Cage is stunning.

    Seller has 100% positive feedback and most his images are period photos.

    This has got to be making his day too.

    I love the questions at the bottom of the page:

    "Q: Why are you trying to sell this for one million?
    A: Because I thought two million might be a bit unreasonable in this economy."

    Seller looks like he is enjoying himself with auction questions also.

    Or, lets say this is not a fake photo. EBAY for heavens sake, try Christies.

    Heck, I'll sell my early Robert Redford for half of that, and throw 3% to APUG to boot. Any takers?

    Your namesake I see was a "puddler" Harry, which was a process to turn pig iron into wrought iron.
