Neat find. Here's the eBay page link:

Although the seller claim is "never published," I posted it on FECC in September 2010, and someone noted it had been up on eBay by the original photographer, Steve Benson. Also, it's not from 1958.

Here's the copy on my topic, it's better quality, and less cropped:

It's only less cropped on the right side and yours is more cropped on the left, but my question is how can this be if the Ebay photo is an original Kodak with the time stamp? Could it be possible that the original negative was taken to different processors who's photo paper was of slightly different formats?

Or maybe the border has been photoshopped onto the picture that was posted here a few years back. Many people make a living selling pictures on Ebay. Caveat emptor

I would think highly unlikely with this sellers feedback . It would be very, very hard to try to pass this off as original if it were a Photoshop reproduction.
I would still just guess years ago the person had the negative processed at two different places to make more copies, and the differences being the way the photo was centered to the paper. Most photos at the time were almost always cropped somewhat to account for the borders and retain size during processing.
