    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.
