Levi's Jeans from 1880s Sell for $76,000


Wall Street Journal - "A Pair of 1880s Jeans Just Sold for $76,000. Their Pocket Reveals a Complicated Piece of Levi’s History."

"The high-value Levi’s are an extraordinarily rare pair of jeans from an era before planes, traffic lights and radios. They were found several years ago by Michael Harris, a self-described denim archaeologist, in an abandoned mineshaft in the American West."

NPR - "A pair of Levi's that sold for $76K reflects anti-Chinese sentiment of 19th century"
