    I have had this jacket for years and never gave it much thought. I was in the store shopping and a tourist from up north came and asked if he could take pictures of my jacket. He took a number of pictures, then asked if I would sell it. I said no, why? He said it was only the third one he had ever seen and he wanted one. Then he made me a very tempting offer which I also refused. Then he said he would buy me a new jacket as well as his offer in cash. The more he talked the less I wanted to sell. That prompted me to research the jacket. It is the 70507 type 3 with the small "e" red tag. Yet it also has single row stitching around the bottom button at the waistline.

    Small e started in 1971 but single stitching at the bottom button hole was only used before 1971. The Levi patch in the middle of the back is large, 8 inches in diameter. The patch, red tag and stitching all caught the guy's eye that wanted to buy it. I wonder if anyone has seen this jacket or might possibly have a link to where there is one.

      Before someone asks, yes I have contacted Levi's but no reply to date.

      This guide might help. It may have something to do with the decal?

      Here's the patch (or badge)

      Celiene the links I have been on but the patch you just posted may well be a huge help. I know from research that many of these jackets were actually produced/manufactured overseas. The patch seems to be the part that doesn't fit with American production. Perhaps this was never offered in the U.S.A. and that would explain people wanting it. I certainly appreciate you lending a hand.

      I also appreciate the loves from other members, thank you.

      I think the patch was privately made. I don't think it's a Levi 'official' patch.

      Thanks Celiene, I just messaged the guy in England who has the patch to see what he can tell me about it. If he is a wealth of information I will post it here for all to share.

      That's a pretty cool Levi's jacket!!! I'm very curious to see what information you find out about it.
