Question about these Levis

Are these the 1947 ones or no?

Yeah these are definitely just the second tier ones. I believe the "vintage" styles should have an orange tab?

Most LVC (Levi's Vintage Clothing) jeans don't have an orange tab - they have red ones. The orange tab was introduced in the 1960's for their lower-end, off-sourced (i.e. not made in San Francisco) lines - these models are seldom produced by LVC.

It's just the leather tag, price tag, paper patch, stitching details, etc look 'off'.

Btw, LVC stuff usually made in USA or Japan - as of this year though, all LVC production have been regulated to their new "XX" division in Europe, price has increased almost two-fold...IMO Levi's vintage stuff is no longer worth getting, the same price will get you much better Japanese repros.
