Will someone please slap me back to reality or confirm what I've just found. Quick research would date this between 1928 (when the pocket got a flap) and 1936 (when the red tab was added). There doesn't look to be any damage under the patches and they look like they could be easily removed. Any Levi's experts? @Stewie @double00

Wait what the fuck? $12.5k? Holy shit
Not that it's necessary, but I second the nom. @kbadgley84 is right... Holy shit!
Even avoided eBay and PayPal fees. I reached out to collectors and appraisers to try to get a value and gauge interest and a few of them gave offers. After a few back and forths, I asked for best offers from everyone and that was it.
