    Default Re: Gucci Handbag: Please help authenticate purse!

    Hi everyone,

    I am new to the forum, just joined today but have been reading through it as a guest for a while. I purchased a vintage Gucci clutch at an estate sale and I am dying to find out if it is real. It seems to be from the 50s and the people were pretty affluent so I have high hopes. The pictures make it look almost white but the true color is tan. The serial number inside is 98/001/3205 (very hard to photograph since it is gold letters on what looks like a suede inside. Thank you for your help. 123.JPG124.JPG125.JPG126.JPG128.jpg129.jpg

    I am new here, so really appreciate any feedback.

    I have a question regarding serial numbers. I just won an auction on eBay and the serial number is 002-39-0069. I have not yet paid. The auction number is 180889399012 (Sorry I tried posting the link, but must have 10 posts first).

    I had my eye on the same model bag for comparison, but now realize that it has the same exact serial number! The auction number with the similar bag is 110886544468

    And now that I've googled the serial number, I'm finding lots of different vintage Gucci bags in different styles with the same serial number.
    I posted my request on one of the other authentication forums, but the authenticator does not authenticate vintage bags.

    Should I be alarmed that two bags in the same style have the same serial number? And what do these serial number mean (date/style/location)? Can any vintage collectors tell me if there are any red flags?

    Thank you so much!

    I can't be positive but in the 50's fakes were not a very big business sooo I think really it looks good to me.... thumbs up here great buy :)

    This GAC looks good to me. You don't have to worry about the same serial numbers. Sometimes, they do tend to have the same. :) Congrats on your buy and do your well to restore it :) It seems to have lost the GG medallion/insignia in front of the bag though.

    Thank you so much, but are you sure this is GAC? I thought GAC was usually printed in gold lettering on the inside flap. My bag and the other bag have a gold plaque "Gucci made in Italy" and neither have the GG medallion. I have my work cut out for me, but it's worth it for such a bargain! My first Gucci bag!!! Doing a happy dance!!!

    Can someone please authenticate this vintage Gucci bag? The seller is making no claims of authenticity and therefore will not guarantee authenticity.

    Ebay auction #230802093884

    Any idea what year and the original price on this bag (if authentic)?

    Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How does no claim of authenticity translate to not guaranteeing authenticity? The seller doesn't say anything like that in the listing. Did you talk to them or something?

    As for the bag, Gucci had a stamp like that at one time. The stamp is fading a bit, so it's hard to compare it to an example.

    You can try to compare and see what you think. There is a nice example toward the bottom of the page under authentic vintage tags.

    "How does no claim of authenticity translate to not guaranteeing authenticity? The seller doesn't say anything like that in the listing. Did you talk to them or something?"

    Yes, I did contact the seller. She bought the bag second-hand and cannot guarantee authenticity. Thank you for the link showing vintage stamps. The picture of the bag in this auction shows a stamp where the "B" in BY is touching the "G" in Gucci and your examples the letters never touch. Any idea how to date this bag if there's no serial number?

    I guess I would be wary if the seller doesn't know where it really came from. I honestly don't know when they started using that label design, but I know they still use it for some handbags today. The company started using bamboo for handles back in the 1940s and they still do today. Maybe someone who is more knowledgeable will recognize this particular style.

    Hi I am new to the forum... I bought a boston vintage web on ebay, it had a money back guarantee and all and has a receipt too... when I got it I thought it looked good, but when I inspected the bag it had a different serial number to the bag that was in the photo, making me think I got a different bag... I don't mind getting a different bag cos its so pretty so as long as its authentic... I just need help on authenticating as I haven't been collecting Gucci long (have collected LVs for 10 years)... Please help, I am desperate :)

    PS- The seller is willing to refund too.. but if its authentic I will keep it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi again guys, can anyone else give me an opinion on the Gucci bag I posted? Castira (authenticator) got back to me just now and they said that it doesnt appear to be an authentic Gucci because the model/production code font and hardware are incorrect?

    Please give me some insight as I am freaking out and extremely disappointed...

    Hello ladies,

    I just bought this vintage Gucci bag on eBay. It may be difficult to authenticate though because the inside of the bag is in bad shape (thus the gold Gucci stamp is gone). Do any vintage lovers know anything about this bag? Any red flags? The ebay item number is 150851273514. Sorry, I tried to post the link but apparently I'm not allowed to do so yet.

    Thanks!!!
