Thanks!  It is a 48.  Here's the back of the top button:

I'm going to go out on a limb and say the latter end of that spectrum:1961/62.
That stamp, which looks like a square '0', is often found on type three's from the early 1960's.

Good to know, thank you!

Edited because I missed your earlier question.  I don't see an XX after the 507, but will give it a closer look when I'm home tonight.  Thanks again.

Ok, I see no XX after the 507, so it either isn't present or was marked in an ink different than the 507 and 48.

What a beauty!! ...  I guess it is an early 60s 501 ... the salmon colored flasher doesn't have any year but the other oilcloth has "copyright 1927" on it ..

Gorgeous pair Eric. They are definitely early 1960's.

Ok, so I was lucky enough to speak to our newest (short-term?) member, 'greeperfierce', who posted the wonderful 1930's Levis found in his Father's attic. 

He kindly allowed me to host and post the pics! 
So here they are, and I will update with any more forthcoming....






beautiful denim..





"Solide" buckle (I've been long trying to work out/research when this type was introduced)






Big stamping on the pocket-bag





I spy a bartack under the exposed back-pocket rivet, also no markings on any button back. 









A hint of yellow..







Shirt-weight denim belt-loops. I'm assuming these are the 9oz or 10oz so the belt-loops would have been around 6oz(?)







Unmistakable chain stitch and redline..















Oops.. nearly forgot my favorite one (check out that wonky stitching!)

It looks like the rivet posts have dimples- defiantly nowhere near my time period......but the 30's pairs I've seen- have rounded rivet posts.....are we certain these are 30's and not 20's?
