Agreed! I'm shocked they are as old as the one person suggests! 1905. They were in the attic of the mining shed, and Leadville has pretty good humidity levels year round. Maybe the 10,000 feet elevation has something to do with it, who knows. Any idea what they could be worth?

Personally, if they were mine, I'd take them to Levi's HQ in SF and let them examine them in detail.

If they are what they appear to be, I would think they will give you a very favourable offer!

Thank you for that info, I tried looking up contact info for the Levi archive, but all I could find was their general contact info. Anyone know the best way to contact Levi's? Thanks for the help in advance, this community is great! Makes me want to keep the jeans myself

I believe Tracey Panek is head of the Archives at Levis. Mail those pics to her..

Thanks for sharing with us. I'd love to see more detailed/clear photos if you have them or take more.

Shredwin’s up first, he’s gonna take them on the building site for a month and if they split, he’ll get a new pair in accordance with the guarantee on the label.

Now, it could just be a case of accidental synchronicity, but.....

First, we are presented with what must be the best preserved example of Gold Rush era Levis ever seen…..found in Colorado...

And then a few hours later, Brit Eaton, the guy who is probably THE expert at finding old Levis in Colorado... Joins the site!!

Too good to be true? Just a coincidence? Buggered if I know??

BTW, a big welcome to Brit.You are a hero of mine!
