LEVI'S 504ZXX (paper patch with guarantee) No.2

Youth model 504ZXX, a zippered version of The 504XX, Youth model of 501ZXX , with "Every Garment Guaranteed". Because the guarantee ticket is "FOR OVER 100 YEARS", it seems to have been manufactured in the relatively late period (end of 1950s to the beginning of 1960s) in the paper patch period with "Every Garment Guaranteed", but it is a rare one in that the zipper with "C"-zipper end, that was generally used until 1940s, is used.

The upper right of "LEVI'S" is marked with an "R", indicating that it is a flasher after trademark registration. The wording is slightly different from that of the 504ZXX with a leather patch or the 504ZXX with a paper patch.

Interestingly, as you can see in the photo, the zipper end is like "C". In general vintage clothing, zips like this were found by the 1940s, and you don't often see them in Levi's or other companies' zip-front jeans. It seems to be an old inventory of Levi's or the zipper manufacturer, but the jeans themselves seem to be around 1960, so it is strange that they had such an old inventory.
