don't think it's the tag, as it's not directly attached to the seam, it seams ;)
whatever - nice pair in good condition Thumbs Up and good luck with the sale 
 (although it won't fetch any big bucks on eBay because of the small size and the fact that these are still a quite common find amongst "thrifters").

The white sticking out of the left side is part of the pocket bag.

Those 501's are stunning Sympathy!

Not are that I have even begun to attempt the 1947-1959 section on this thread yet, and I dont have any photos to prove it, 
BUT .... I have now seen models made between 1947-1951 with the numbers 14 and 16 stamped on the reverse of the waistband buttons, meaning there was at least one factory with codes as early as 1948!

Hi folks, after making a big clou few years ago with buying a deadstock late 50s 501xx from 70€,
I was lucky enough to finally find, at a reasonable price, a nearly pristine late 60s
501xx. Funny because only two weeks ago I bought the new `76. These resemble a lot to the late
60s 501xx. I will provide you with some pics over easter.
Have a great time!

...and this would appear to have been his inspiration for those 'masculine' poses.

LOL Oh please you dudes. This pair seems to be clean. Got that wonderfull old cardboard thrifters shop odor, rather than a sweat and oil smell.
