    Thanks again lils for the quick replies...

    I did look at the 30 for 358.00 that you are talking about, but a lot of leather had rubbed off the sides, it seemed like every bag in this color had creases or scratches or actual leather missing.

    I did like that this was an older model in excellent condition, because I like that the LV is much darker and on both sides of the bag....

    but I guess that's what I get for not coming here first before making an offer, I paid more than I should have
    I just got excited to find one in fantastic condition, I made an offer and asked questions later... Double

    Oh I'm sorry! I didn't mean to make you second guess yourself!! The bag you got is in GREAT shape, and it really looks new. For a bag that is 16, it's perfect!!

    Hey Lils,
    I emailed the lady I bought the bag from and had her reassure me that it is in excellent condition,
    which she did... and she said I sounded worried about the age, I told her that I was a little, she offered me another one that was made in 96,she said a little newer..
    same excellent condition, she looks to sell only bags that are gently used, tries not to have anything missing, like locks, keys and dust bags.
    But it was up to me?
    I thought that was very nice.

    So I went for the Toledo blue Epi made in 96. I Love the color
    it was nice of her to offer the slightly newer one, and she said it was even cleaner than the one I bid on, which I thought was already in fantastic condition...
    Attachment 16409 click for lager version

    I saw a green one on Malleries that was a 96 and it had a big spot on the front and it was 595.00
    so I am feeling much better about what I spent to get it in such great shape.

    I thought it was great of her to want to make me happy,
    She shipped it out today, now I'm excited.

    I don't think this is fake. Can you get a picture of the date code? It should be on the side of the barrell, I think up and down. I used to have the 26 but can't remember exactly if that's where the code was.

    Hmm, something about the stitching makes me iffy on this papillon. I think the papillons are only supposed to have 2 stitches holding the straps onto the bag. Other than that, it looks good.
