Does the item level in Team Fortress 2 affect the particular item?

Is there any difference in functionality between levels of Vintage Pyrovision Goggles, or are the levels only useful for trading value?
(mine are Level 23)


In general, item levels are completely auxiliary. They have no gameplay effect and I don't even think most traders care about them.


Item levels exist for collectors to obsess about. Special numbers tend to be more sought-after than others, such as 1, 77, 99, or 100.

Often times these collectors will try to obtain a full set of gear with matching levels. So...there is no difference between any items based on level other than what people attribute to them.
