I actually took pictures of my pair that I've had since summer of 07. They are different from the $50 STF in the way that they have hidden rivets vs bar tacks, leather patch vs "leatherlike paper" patch, 1947 cut vs god knows what cut, made in poland vs made in DR, mexico, Haiti, etc. Oh and these also have zinc buttons, but I'm no expert on zinc vs copper buttons
IMO, these are better than the capital e line, and just below the LVC line.
