This old pair of LEVI'S were found in a mine in the Rand Mining District, on the Mojave Desert,. California. They are covered in candlewax from the candle's the miner was using to light the tunnel he was working in. They were found with and old paper bag with the name of a mercantile store which operated between 1895 and 1898 in the town or Randsburg. Their was also a gunny sack with the initials A.P.K. and Randsburg marked on it. A.P.K. is through to be Adam P. Kuffel who was a partner in the mercantile store.

These pants have the cloth label vice the leather label. The label (pictured) indicates that they are size W34 x L33, They are copper riveted with the rivets marked L.S. & Co. S.F. They are buckle back (pictured) with suspender buttons. Buttons are silver in color and are all marked LEVI STRAUSS & CO. S.F.CAL. Tthe pants were made with just one back pocket on the right hand side.

The pants are in excellent condition with two small flaws. One hole just above where the left hand back pocket would be, which can be covered by a Quarter and one missing piece of cloth measuring approximatley 1/2 "by !/2" on the band just to the right hand side of the fly.

Shit is clean!!

Dude better restart the auction with more pics. I'd hire a professional to make the auction look better. I woulda done my research, and had these fetured on the front page too. I think a pair much like this went for like $200,000 a few years back.

LVCs are nice because the quality is better than standard levi's such as featuring higher quality denim and selvedge for instance.

It's nicer than general levi jeans hence the price different.

They aren't LVC. They are just normal Levis. Except made in the 1890s. Its a collector thing.

They aren't LVC. LVC replicate old cuts and styles. These are just normal Levis. Just that they were made in the 1890s instead of 21st century.
