    Default My New (USED) Louis Vuitton bags!!

    I bought these at an estate sale for $60.00. I just can not believe the luck! I believe they are real but I will have to have the handle fixed on the speedy. I just wanted to share my luck

    Congratulations on your find...

    I am not an expert on vintage but those don't look authentic to me. I would wait for boysRsmelly's opinion. She is pretty good with vintage bags.

    Sorry... Those pieces are not authentic. Do you think there is a way for you to get your money back?

    Oh man, if those were authentic that would be a steal. Unfortunately there not.. I would definitely try to get your money back.

    I can't say for sure that these are fake. The Speedy could be French Company, judging by the fact that it looks so old, and sometimes they vary in the way the LVs and fleurs line up.

    Am I way off on this?

    You're correct that some vintage items don't have perfect alignment lilstrlett. I don't believe these are French Company pieces though. The Speedy has Louis Vuitton stamped on the rivets and French Company rivets were plain.

    my mom kept the first speedy she ever bought before FC had their run with louis vuitton. her bag is actually very well aligned. the stitching of course was much more hand-done than what we see today. she's right too, FC did not mark the rivets on the handles. the closure is also different from what a FC one would be.

    ^^^ Yep, you're right. The French Company Speedys had a push lock thingie instead of a padlock. Most vintage bags had pretty good alignment too, but there are some exceptions.

    K just wanted to double check. I couldn't tell from the pictures but was wondering just in case. For me, with these, I can't tell just by looking at them that they're not authentic.

    The rivets, lining and closure look wrong on the speedy!

    I guess that even reproductions can get old!

    Sorry about this!
