Total denim noob trying to date a Levi's jacket I found thrifting

Pictures here:" rel="nofollow -

Key facts:
-no hand warmer pockets
-blank red tab (apparently 10% of Levi's get this? Does anyone know when this practice started?)
-buttons stamped with "522"
-double stitched adjacent to bottom button hole
-no care tag
-navy accent stitching

Basically I can't tell if its actually vintage or LVC (Levi's vintage-inspired reproductions from what I can tell?) If it is vintage, I think it's from between late 60s to mid-80s but would love to get more specific if anyone has any insight.

I'm certainly no authority, but i'd say it was definitely vintage rather than LVC.

Your proposed timeline is probably about right. Mid 70's at a guess.
