Hi guys - I am hoping your collective knowledge will put an end to my continued quest to  date these very old denim overalls. I have had friends that tinker in vintage denim suggest it could be anywhere from late 1800's to early 1900's..but that was just a lone opinion of a novice so I am hoping a seasoned pro can weigh in definitively. There are no donut hole metal buttons, but the metal buckles have numbers which I believe read  "Oct. 28, 90.", I've tried searching patent databases but to no avail. The striped wide striped denim you see on the photo were used for the pocket liners. This is the wide striped hickory so I believe it may be railroad workers overalls. Last but not least, because of a lack of a tag, I am assuming it could possibly be home made. Besides the soiling the overalls are in remarkably excellent condition with no holes or tears. 

                                                                                                                                                              

Any headsup Cheerfully accepted

Maybe nobody here can help you date them?

With no obvious markings or labels it's a real head scratcher.
