Levi's 317 Jeans Orange tab...need help

I've lurked on here quite a bit, and always found some great info. I have a question and I'm hoping someone can help.

I was searching a local "farm type store" looking for jeans, Levi's specifically, and found an oddball. In the 505 section, they had a pair of 317s. I've never seen a pair like this, they appeared to be shrink to fit (had a shrink warning inside...I think said 10%), were a zip fly, seemed to be a higher rise, orange tab, very dark blue, and the tag on the outside said Made in the USA. The guy at the store said they got them in by mistake, never had seen a pair like them, and just put them in with the 505s. I did a search online, and besides vintage orange tabs, I couldn't find out much info about them. Did I stumble on a pair that was gathering dust at Levi's? Or do they regularly sell 317s? I couldn't find any on ebay or any online store, including Levi's, so I'm at a loss. Anyone ever see a pair of Levi's 317, or better yet own a pair? Thanks in advance!
