I have seen reference to 347 button back stampings on Hong Kong made Type 3s from the 70s.


Don't quote me tho - there are plenty on here who know far better than me

Is this the number that’s on the pants-that you posted on Denimbro finds- if so, looks like a XXZ that dates before 1966 and after 1962......and it’s made in the USA

Spoke to Levis .... what a waste of time! They told me that they no longer give out information on the history of their products including where they may have been manufactured.
