On 40’s 501’s...These ink stamped numbers are often washed away, was curious if this
Pair still had them.

I agree with the rest of you- it’s real or the best Japanese repro on the planet.
Any remnants of pocket bag stamps?

looking at the fabric and thread in your pics I would say they are original vintage.
Too much Denim - too little time...

That patch would exclude anything other than LVC Japan, which to me does not look like their denim recipe. Based on pictures over the internet my guess is they’re not repos. We’re going to need more details to date them however.

I believe it is a real Levi's from the late 40s or early 50s. LVC replicas are easily recognized.
A question if it can be, Where did you find that jewel?
