I just listed a pair of 501s that I have owned for a long time picked up at a thrift shop.

You guys helped me date my one-wash 1953 leather patch levis 501s so I thought perhaps you can help me make sure I am not under valuing or over valuing this pair.

There are no tags or marking on the pocket bags just like my 1953s. But there is a 555 marking on the top button. Unless that button was replaced at some point, that implies a later date and perhaps LVC.

I own two pairs of pre-LVCs from the 90s and this is not that. It is also not a fake knockoff. They are legitimate 501s. Thank you

555 stamp is Valencia St all the way. I think the factory closed in early 2000s. Great pair of jeans but probably not as old as you may think they are...
