Stamps are silver as is all hardware. TIA
    that definitely looks like a fake to me.

    Default New to this site. Need some major help in authenticating this Chanel Cambon Bag! Thx

    Hello everyone!
    I am new to this website so please forgive me if I am posting this in the wrong section. I won this ebay auction a couple of days ago and thought I loved the bag. I thought I got a good deal until I saw that the stitching of the Chanel snake skin logo is flared out (and i know that Chanel is known for good quality and the stitching should not be flaring out like this....).
    I am ready to pay and all but I am just super worry that it is fake. If anyone could let me know if this bag is authentic or not before I pay, it would be much appreciated.

    Sorry, didn't see this earlier. This bag looks good and the seller (I found the auction) is reputable.

    This is an odd one. It sort of looks like a camera bag style. Is the interior really purple? Chanel typically had either a red or a black interior. I have never seen the CC logo stamped below the word CHANEL before. But I'm not all that great with vintage pieces.
    Does it have a serial number sticker at all?

    Thanks for replying!
    The inside is more of a deep red
    Im stumped because there is no serial number anywhere also Im wondering about the "blitz" that is on the back of the zipper pull. There is not much info I can find on the zipper pull except other people that have them are asking about them as well..

    I hope someone can help me!

    Thank you in advance

    You need to have 10 posts. Once you do, you can attach images under "manage attachments" if you click on the "go advanced" button. Otherwise, a hosted image from another site like photobucket can be posted by clicking on the button that looks like a photo of a tree. A window will pop up to paste the image's URL into.

    You are your sister are shorter right? I would suggest the jumbo and not the maxi, it might look too much like luggage on her. Plus she could save $400.

    They look good to me.

    Cassandra,

    Vintage Black Jumbo Flap: It looks good to me. Ask how old the bag is if you can. I really like the color combo. and the price is excellent as well. It may be personal preference, but a problem with some shorter flap classics as this one is, the flaps ends tend to rise with use. IDK how long this bag was used, but if your sis don't mind Chanel's flap ends slightly lifting with time, then disregard what I said.

    Vintage Maxi: sold already, but it looks good as well. On that one the flaps are visible that they're rising. With time they will rise higher.

    Denim Double Flap: I personally wouldn't recommend this bag to anyone who carries a significant amount of stuff. The flap inside (double flap) takes up a lot of room from the interior of the bag. I love the double flap look, but you can't carry much in there, you have a limited space. Plus its kind of difficult to get in and out of a double flapped Classic.

    From the three posted, my choice would be the Vintage Jumbo Flap. Just my two cents.
