Off-set belt loop is normal on original early 501z. These date from between 1954-c.1957. The Conmar zipper puts them at 1954/55..ish.

Fantastic score!

Hi. Need help please. I think I've narrowed these Levis down, but would like a double check. Found these for about $5 a few weeks ago. I think they're first edition 1954/55 501z with Conmar zipper. Of course copper hidden rivets, etc.  When I found them, I thought they were LVC. Got home, and realized there was no marks on back of front button. 

Will post a few pics.

The offset belt loop is throwing me, is this normal? 

Thanks in advance for your help and comments.

^also never seen a 'for over 50 years' (supposedly c.1922) guarantee ticket NOT dated 1927.
This copyrighted date, in the bottom left corner of the ticket, was to mark the name Levis.

So all a little confusing at times

According to the guarantee tickets (stapled to the back right pocket) the 'for over 50 years' ticket (c.1922) states nine ounce, whereas the 'for over 60 years' guarantee ticket (c.1932) states 10 ounce.
Apparently after the Great depression, levis amassed a massive backlog of 501's, which (for many reasons l wont go into just now) were only completely depleted around 1935. This means a pair made in 1930 may not have been sold until the 1935.
Yes l realise the catalogue excerpt posted by lronhorse is dated 1938, but it pays to keep an open mind, as some lvc models were introduced years ago (1933 model in 2000 and 1937 in 2002) when archival information was at its infancy.
