Albert Einstein is one of the most famous scientists in history. That’s why his 1931 Levi Strauss leather jacket is going to auction and expected to sale for up to $100,000. Einstein wore it on the cover of Time magazine, and it will be sold alongside Einstein’s pocket watch and a box of building blocks – a toy similar to the modern Lego bricks.
According to Christie’s:
“This is an incredibly worn, rather pungent leather jacket, that belonged to Albert Einstein. “This jacket seems to capture Einstein’s mood as he embarks on a new life in the US. It’s made by Levi Strauss, and feels particularly American.”
