Yeah, come on Chris - get those rarities posted on here, we wanna see what you've got! 
I will try and take some pics of the two 'new' acquisitions I picked up lately, plus some stuff you asked for on the 557xx you asked forBig smile
 
(btw may have to start a Levi Strauss 1962-1984 thread)

See- now thats proper thinking Heech! Maybe i shouldn't post any thing,just because its rare? BGB- if you don't want to blog or post a certain item...Best not to talk about the item. BTW this thread goes to 1970, everything from the 60's is ok here. Heech go ahead and start the new Levi thread 1970 to  1984.

Didn't sound dickish at all mate, one thing I would advise is if you're gonna spend £££ on vintage denim, make sure spend some of that spondooley on a camera that is reliable, and keep those pics on disk.. etc.
 
A 519xx eh?  Sounds great, cant wait for the pics!
 
Cool

Here's some pix from my old 'Boon' Denim jackets mag on the 557xx labels for BGB, shows the shirt-weight material pocket-flaps, domed-middle copper button and 'every garment guaranteed' label -
 
 
From this jacket -
 
 
Here's the basic chart, showing 'blanket' and 'long' -
 
 
Would pay good money for an early 558XX in mint condition sz 46 btw!
 
..Lastly the white levi's labels -

I've been waiting for years to confirm that a Levi XX from 1890-91 has a selvage waistband and a single needle yoke^^^(FU) If all goes well in the coming months, I hope to be able to show what the pocket bag looks like.

I thought this would be right up your alley Heech, I noticed a difference in the rivets on my early 1891 #2 compared with the rivet on the xx scrap. The xx scrap rivet seems to be older?
