I've been referring to this:


Mine looks like the centre label, and it has the over-stitching on the top left. It could also maybe be bottom left, shame I can't see the details.
I have seen the same label with a small e tag before but the date would fit with big E too.

Forgot to add the button code, managed to get a decent shot and it is definitely 529. Can't see that listed anywhere though.

There's no way to date a very specific year for the production of this type 3 jacket, the production year label not yet introduced....will 1971-3 be  specific enough for you?

Thanks, wasn't sure if here were at pitching changes or anything that could narrow it down.
Didn't the capital E stop in 1971 though or did some still use it After?

There are still some big e red tab stock left after 1971....used up to 1973/4 (the youngest pair of big E jeans I have seen was made in 1974)

Genericguy- nice photos, I just found my jacket just like yours- same wash tag, but mine has a small e.
I started a new Levi jacket thread, when you find time, post your jacket in the new thread...Mine has a 532
Button number.
