T4phage: you're right. That text is not universal on the repros. I have a pair of the 1955 repros with some commemorative text and an image on the canvas of the left front pocket. You can see it by simply looking inside the jean (when you are not wearing them, obviously). I also have a pair of 1947 repros with the leather patch, and there is nothing on the pockets. I suppose there is some way for the traders to tell the difference between the repros and original vintage, but I don't know what it is.
