Hi,

I'm selling a pair of old Levi's on ebay.co.uk that I bought second hand over 20 years ago, and it'll be good to give an approx production date in the ad.

Two clues:
Red Line Selvadge
Button Fly with an underscored 6 on the back of top button.

thanks!

So looks like between 1971 and 1982.

What does the underscored 6 on the reverse of the top botton refer to?

thanks!

I am assuming they are small "e" so they would be post 1971.

They have a single digit number on the button indicating they are "single-stich" placing them in the early to mid 70's.

good luck.
