Pants since 1857 are sold in the United States for more than 100 thousand dollars

What may be the world’s oldest pair of jeans sold for $114,000 during a vintage memento auction. The work pants were pulled from a shipwrecked trunk off the North Carolina coast in 1857, and are the world’s oldest pair of jeans, according to the sellers.

Heavy-duty white miners’ pants with five-button fly were among 270 gold-rush-era artifacts that Nearly a million dollars sold this past weekend in Reno, according to Holabird Western Americana Collections, an antique store,

It is suspected that there is a connection with the popular Levi

There is disagreement as to whether these expensive pants would have any connection to Levi Strauss, the father of today’s jeans. And it is that these were officially manufactured in 1873, 16 years before the first pair was manufactured by Levi Strauss & Co., based in San Francisco. Some say that historical evidence suggests a connection with Strauss, who was then a wealthy consumer goods wholesaler, and that the pants may be a very early version of what later became his popular pants.

However, historian and director of the company’s archives, Tracy Panek, says that any claims about its origins are “speculation”:

In an email to The Associated Press, he wrote, “The pants are not Levi’s and I do not believe they are Miner’s work pants.”

Whether it was a Levi’s or not, these historic pieces of clothing were on the SS Central America when it sank in a storm September 12, 1857, were filled with passengers who began their journey in San Francisco and headed to New York via Panama. Furthermore, whether or not there are notable Levi’s, there is no indication that vintage work pants from the Gold Rush era exist.

,Those Minor Jeans are like the first flag on the Moon, a landmark moment in history.said Dwight Manley, managing partner of California Gold Marketing Group, which owns the artifacts and offered them for auction.

Other auctioned items that had been buried in the wreck for more than a century, 7,200 feet (2,195 m) below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean, included the keys the buyer needed to enter the treasure room , where there were tons of gold rush coins and appraiser’s bullion. It sold for $103,200.

,Nothing has ever been known about the horrors of these recovered artifacts, which represented a time capsule of everyday life during the gold rush.said Fred Holabird, president of the auction company.
