Hi, I found 501 jeans with top fly button stamped 501. Could you help me with dating this pair?

They're really nice. They have even selvedge inside coin pocket.
It's difficult to believe they're fake. Is there possibility they're legit 1988-1993?

they are nice indeed - the denim is great, this is why i bought myself a pair few month ago.
they also manage to evolve sick fades.
as far as i know there was only one repro before LVC started, it was a 1966 repro, but the denim was pretty different. cone denim never produced such a slubby uneven denim, which is more common with japanese denim.
they main fake indicator is the 501 stamped on the button back.
any other opinions?

Just received this answer from Levi's customer service. I'm confused now.

Found a pair of NWT 501s from around 1986 a few months ago and finally had a chance to photograph them. Not a super old pair, but a neat example form the period when they transitioned from selvedge to non-selvedge.

Small e, 552 button stamp, tags attached, white overlock outseam stitch...

Wanted to share but i can't figure out how to post photos (even though I managed it with a few pages ago in April). Sorry, tech-phobic.

Ive noticed the price of those^ has been steadily creeping up recently.

You can just drag/drop them from your Imgur account into the Message: box
I'll endorse anything for cash
