First time posting and a very informative site. I have read so many feeds in regard to identifying the year's levi's were made that I now have a confused headache! I'm crying uncle! I would be immensely appreciative to anyone who could help me solve the mystery of when these jeans were made. This has really gave me the blue jean "Blue's". Here is the link to view the photos and description of what I have attempted to gather. Heck, they may not even be legit, but they sure look real.

  • Levi's Big “E” 501 Jeans I think from the late 1960’s (1968-1971?)
  • Selvedge / no redline
  • Orange stitching through-out most of the jeans construction
  • Top fly button stamped with # 8
  • Double-sided red Big "E" tag
  • Rivets have copper fronts/silver backs with lowered lettering
  • The middle belt loop in the back is centered
  • There is NO printing of wash instructions on inside pocket linings.
  • There are no additional tags, markings, or cleaning instructions anywhere on the jeans and no evidence of any ever existing
  • There is NO V-stitch at the front top waist button

Late 60s/early 70s. Were you hoping for something more exact?

Thank You for the response! My confusion is all the overlapping during that time period. The best I could figure was 1970 however variables still make it difficult for the inexperienced. Does this time period have much value? It's hard to find much at all on the Levi's collecting subject compared to other collectibles. Ill keep looking and studying. Thanks Again!

Sure they’ll have a value but condition is key. These are pretty washed out whereas I’d have thought most collectors will still want a healthy level of colour in them.

Perhaps $2-300 max. Best thing to do is find a local vintage store that can give you a market value. Do t expect to be able to retire 😜
