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.

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

Pictures here:

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.
