I expect it is your BASE version. Here is the info from the book:

For every conflicted file, Subversion places three extra unversioned files in your working copy:

This is your file as it existed in your working copy before you updated your working copy—that is, without conflict markers. This file has only your latest changes in it. (If Subversion considers the file to be unmergeable, the .mine file isn't created, since it would be identical to the working file.)

This is the file that was the BASE revision before you updated your working copy. That is, the file that you checked out before you made your latest edits.

This is the file that your Subversion client just received from the server when you updated your working copy. This file corresponds to the HEAD revision of the repository.

Here OLDREV is the revision number of the file in your .svn directory, and NEWREV is the revision number of the repository HEAD.
