    Hmm, hard to say what that is supposed to be. Maybe they were trying to do a date code but didn't stagger the numbers for month and year?
    If you don't mind me asking, where have you been shopping for these bags at? You can always post pics or links to auctions if the item is being sold online. We're always glad to help if we can.

    I'm gonna move this to the authentication thread.

    Unfortunately, serial numbers and date codes can be faked. You just need to be familiar with the styles. What was produced, what wasn't. This includes knowing what kind of lining something is supposed to have (among other things). Like multicolor bags all have an alcantara lining, not suede. The black ones have a mushroom gray color lining and the white ones have a raspberry red lining.

    Need your help ladies. I'm trying to buy my 1st LV and I've decided on the classic speedy (25 or 30). How does this one look?

    Looks good to me sands, but it's pretty well-loved.

    Thanks lils! Yeah, the condition could be better (especially those handles) but the price is low. I'm still checking others out on ebay & bonanzle. I'm just so afraid of the fakes out there. Maybe I should just stick to malleries or fashionphile.....

    ^^^ Agreed, but that isn't possible for some people. The closest LV boutique for me is about 8 hours away. Also, I don't think you can take pictures from an ebay auction to a boutique and say "hey, is this fake? I'm interested in buying it on ebay." We're all just trying to help each other out.

    ^^ You're absolutely correct brs. Going to the LV boutique would be a 6 hr drive for me so buying online is my only option. I don't know enough about LV to spot a fake so I greatly appreciate the help I get from you guys here on TBF. Thanks!

    Also I don't know if they would authenticate at the store anyway. There are rumors in both directions - they won't do it or they will.

    I just read about this thread on Bag Bliss and I'm hoping you can help settle something for me :P

    I received an LV wallet from my stepmom several years ago. When she gave it to me I asked whether it was real or not and she said "Of course it's real!" I'm not really very well-versed on designer things so I had no idea. Was wondering if you guys know whether it's real or not. Here are some pics:

    Sorry, but that doesn't look good to me...wait for someone else to chime in. What does the date code read? It looks like one letter then numbers, which would make it a model number, not a date code...
