Is this John Wilkes Booth?

So I found a large group of tintypes in a me they are always fascinating - a much more primitive photo- but there are some really fun images in them..

and in the back of the book was this lone tintype..not in as good of condition..and the face looked so familiar..

so what do you think?
Watch my auction on eBay on this one(just click on the tintype) and lets see what others think!

the top image IS John Wilkes Booth, the bottom is the tintype i have..
dont you love being a history detective???

It sure looks like him. I have not seen too many photos of him so I don't know.
