    Default Buying a Second Handbag and not sure what to do.

    I figured I would post this as so many of you have posted only to have no one answer.
    First before you buy on line or from Ebay, put a post in the Authenticate this bag!!!!
    Do your homework, are you familiar with the bag? Certain bags where made in certain countries, case in point tonight I had a lovely lady ask if the Cambon bag she was about to buy was authentic After viewing the auction I was able to deuterium that it was a Fake due to having a made in France sticker (The Cambon's where only made in Italy)
    Classic's should be made of one of three skin's Calf,Caviar and Lamb (Flaps) They are also made in both France as well as Italy but Certain years.
    The GST's are made of Calf and Caviar not lamb.
    Serial stickers should be white and the number's should be all in the same row and should have a line depending on the starting number for more information on the serial stickers check out Yoogi's Closet - Date and Auth Codes
    No Serial number should match each bag will have it's own serial number and never repeat.

    Most importantly is if you are doubtful about a bag or you really want to buy it ask in the Authenticate this bag form and someone will be more then happy to authenticate the bag. Try and get as much information as possible about the bag Such as a link to the Auction, A clear photo of the serial sticker Just a snap shop of the front of the bag is not going to be enough information for Authenticating a bag.

    More information on the serial stickers is bags made pre 1980's did not have stickers anything made before 1986 will not have a sticker but will have a stamp (made in) which will give the information for the bag.
    If your post goes unnoticed for a day or two feel free to shoot me a message I am usually around and will do my best to help you with your Chanel bag.

    I hope this helps clear up any problems or helps you save money on your next Chanel bag. Also when the price seems too good chances are it is a FAKE !!!!!!!!

    I wrote to her explaing it was a fake bag and to cancel the transaction. Hopefully she gets her money back from the lady she bought it from and don't sell it to unsuspecting people looking for the pink cambon purse. :/
