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?

The evidence of chainstitch and redlines suggest 1927/8 onward until 1936, when the red tab/hidden rivet model became the standard.
Also has bartacking under the exposed back pocket rivets, a feature that seems to be more 1930's going by other pairs/images of.. l've seen.

I know pairs made in the first half of the 1920's have plain fly buttons and concave suspender and top button. Also the flattened as well as dimpled rivets.
This pair could be from 1928 or 1935, who knows for sure?

Well done Dr. and thanks for sharing.
It´s simple nice to see, how close the current 33 repros get to the originals, the red ine that is just not in the middle of the white selvage, the back pockets which slipped a bit to far to the sides, that reminds me of the unflattering Lee bottom styles... good job LVC! ....if only the denim would come so close.Cry

I wondered about the flat- non concave buttons- would you say that these were the buttons that went on and on- were these the last change to the buttons- or is there another after these?
