    Default Chanel Bag Real or Fake?

    Hi. My name is Luzinda and Im new to this forum. I bought a Chanel Bag a few years back and thought it was the real thing. Now, I am trying to sell it but someone questioned its authenticity. Now, I am quesitoning it myself. Its got a lot of high quality feature but unfortunately is missing the hologram and/or serial #.

    ^ Doesn't look authentic to me. Lining is incorrect.

    Sad Please Help: CHANEL BLACK LAMB SKIN QUILTED XL JUMBO FLAP BAG

    Hi guys,

    I'm a new member of thebagforum. I have recently purchased a Chanel lamb skin XL Jumbo on ebay from a Power seller. The bag was claimed authentic. I have researched about the bag as well as the seller's feedback and reputation and I believe the bag is authentic.

    However, recently I have found many websites that sell fake AAA quality chanel handbags, they look very real and I got worried about the authenticity of my handbag. I am a LV fan and not very experienced with Chanel handbags. Can any of you give me a suggestion about my bag or help me to tell if it's authentic? I have provided the link to the item on ebay, the purchase is very recent so you can till see it, if you can not open it, please search for item number 180382699475.

    Any of your help would be very appreciated!

    Thank you

    Cheers,

    anh1729

    ^^^ The bag looks alright to me. It's a mid-90's bag and everything looks to be consistent with other bags from that time frame.

    Thanks! I am not very experienced with Chanel, didn't know the bag is that old but I think I was lucky to get it in such a good condition. Do you have any idea about the serial number of the bag? (like which year it was made?)

    It's probably 1995 or 1996.

    Glad to hear it! I hope you enjoy your new bag! And I agree with you about how nice it looks for being over a decade old. Someone must have really cared for it well.

    Fake. Wrong tag, lining, style, etc.

    If something looks brand new, and only costs $55, it's fake. You can't even a used one for that cheap.

    thanks for that, it is used and doesn't look brand new the lady at the vintage shop says that she has connections from the upper class ladies of toorak in melbourne and most of the stuff is just given to them when they get sick of it so they can sell everything quite cheap as their cost is nil..
    I'm dissapointed but if its fake its fake i guess..

    ^^^ Malleries is a good place to buy from, but they can be a bit pricey. If it's an older bag, then I believe the measurements can vary.


    Oh, and for future reference, yes... authenticity cards and hologram stickers can be and ARE faked. So just because something has those things does not guarantee that it is authentic.
