Pair of Levi’s jeans from 1880s sold for $76,000 at auction in New Mexico: report

The wax from the candles used by the miners is visible on the legs of the jeans.

At an auction in New Mexico on October 1, a man paid $76,000 for a pair of Levi’s jeans from the 1880s. The buyer of the used jeans was Kyle Haupert, a 23-year-old vintage clothing dealer from San Diego, California, wall street journal informed of.

“The bid makes the pair of vintage jeans one of the most valuable ever. Mr. Haupert, a vintage clothing dealer, took 90 percent of the winning bid, while the remaining 10 were kicked off by Zip Stevenson, a veteran of vintage Bazar, who has run Denim Doctors, a Los Angeles store since 1994,” the report added.

Mr Haupert told wall street journal That he was still bewildered, just surprised in itself to buy them.

The total price paid for the jeans, including the buyer’s premium, was $87,400. The rare pair of expensive jeans dates back to the time before airplanes, traffic lights and radios.

Michael Harris, a self-described denim archaeologist, told wall street journal That pair of jeans was found many years ago in an abandoned mine in the American West.

On his store’s Instagram account, Mr. Haupert posted photos from the auction and a pricey pair of jeans.

Mr. Haupert captioned the photo, “$76,000 jeans, 1880 Levi’s One Pocket Buckle Back Jeans. One of Levi’s oldest known pairs that exists. It speaks for itself. Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the years.” I am so blessed that I own them.”
