Hey Deninseeker, welcome and great project!

I have a type from what I can ascertain to be between '68-'73 with a big 'E', smaller label, blue thread under the pocket, and what I think is 524 stamped on the button backs (it's almost too worn down to tell). Interesting enough is it has a bigger buttonhole on the cuffs with chainstich that strikes through the middle to create two separate holes for adjustable tightness. Not sure if this was done post-production, but you can see pics on page 122 of the Levi Strauss 1873-1973 thread.

Nice. Is there a map pocket inside or what are those rivets for?
Too much Denim - too little time...

Those are inside buttons, they button the internal flap of material.....It’s what I’m guessing bluetrain was referring to- as a gas flap?
