The paper patch has been shifted slightly near the center of the book to the extent that the tear-off tag is attached.
It's slender compared to the 501, and you can see that it tapers in a straight line from the crotch.
The waist belt and yoke are made of vertical fabric, which is one of the differences from the 501.
It is CARE stamped and has a tear-off tag.
The design is a continuation of the traditional Levi's flasher ones. The year of copyright acquisition is 1978.
The top one is "FOR OVER 130 YEARS". The copyright year for the guaranty ticket is still 1966.
A shrinkage of 3% is stated.
The numbers "09 1 5" suggest that it was made in September 1981." The number "5" does not match the number on the back of the top button.
Near-square-shaped back pocket. It has quite a bit of arcuate stitching on the bottom.

It is stitched with a chain stitch, just like the 501 from the 66shain model year onwards.

It's stamped "650."
Copper-plated iron rivets

Side split stitching over orange thread lock. The hem is chain stitched and quite a bit off at the seams.
