    Default Re: Chanel Handbag: Please help authenticate purse!

    The underside of the clasp concerns me. The screws have the star-shaped heads and the font looks strange.
    Another thing that concerns me is the quilting alignment on the front side of the flap closure. Either the picture was taken at a funny angle or it is off.

    Here's a picture of an authentic clasp so you can see what I'm talking about:

    ^ Good point bRs. The screw heads do look off.

    I just got a chanel bag today, although i'm already pretty positive its a replica (no serial number/it looks a little off) i'm wondering how obvious it is that it's not real. i don't think i've ever actually seen a real chanel bag, so i'm just curious if it's really obvious that its fake, or not so obvious. thanks for all your help!

    prettywaste: It will be obvious to chanel-lovers that the bag is fake~ I believe the best way is to return the bag and get your money back. You will feel uncomfortable carrying a fake bag.

    Prettywaste - The bag is most definitely fake. My guess is that anyone who knows Chanel would know immediately that it was a fake and anyone who does not know Chanel would probably just assume its a fake anyway. Then again, there are always those people that would be like "Chanel, who?"...
    It would probably be best if you returned it. Personally, I couldn't live with the guilt of carrying a fake bag even if people that saw it had no clue.

    cute color and bag, but it looks kinda fake. i believe it's suppose to be a jumbo, but the flap is not suppose to be straight and the zipper is not round. or it could be a vintage bag but idk

    I agree something isn't right about this bag. The serial number looks off because it beginning in 0 would indicate something very old. But the 0's didn't have the lines through them back then. Also the screws look funny, like they are domed instead of flat.

    just looked at it again! sorry it's definitely fake.. if you look at the logo it's missing the copyrighted symbol or whatevers the r or c with the circle stands for.

    Question Please help me?? Questions on authenticity.

    Hey everyone, I'm new here.
    I am about to buy a red Chanel 2.55 handbag on ioffer.com and everything looks good to me, however I'd like to have a few other people look at it to make sure I'm not wasting my money on a knockoff.

    Help please! Would be appreciated :)
