517 is rare in Levi’s vintage reprints.

The factory number “555” is the Valencia factory (closed in 2002).
The Valencia factory has a long history of manufacturing Levi’s, and Levi’s made by the Valencia factory is popular in Japan.
The display tag on the inside is not “made in USA” but “Made in Francisco” where the Valencia factory is located.

Levi Book of from autumn to winter 1999 - LVC 90s Levi's 517 1971 model "Saddleman" reprint.

The Levi Book of the image is from autumn to winter 1999.
Around 1999, there were more reprints in Japan than they are now.
Of course, the 501 reprint is popular, but 517 etc. were also reprinted.
I’ve seen jeans for many years, but I rarely see this Levi’s reprint 517.
There is damage to her hem,
Other than that, I think it’s hard to find something that is in good condition and has a cool fade.
