    Alright, I fixed the link for you.
    What you have is a luggage piece. From what I can see, the alignment looks good and everything is where it should be. It looks like you were trying to take pictures of the heat stamp and maybe the date code? The pictures are too blurry to really tell anything from those. Does your camera have a macro setting? It looks like a little flower on most cameras. If you could upload some clearer pics, that would be great.

    I should add, the zipper pulls look different from this one that is listed on ebay.

    Hi Guys

    could you please help me authenticate following purse. Seller is stating the purse is genuine LV bag but has no receipt, no box or bag. This purse only comes with dust bag. Could you please check following photos I have put up and see if you can tell whether this is an authentic bag or not? Thanks for your help.

    [QUOTE=boysRsmelly;223795]I should add, the zipper pulls look different from this one that is listed on ebay.


    Amazing - the bag on Ebay looks exactly like my bag! However, you are correct - the zipper pull is slightly different where mine has a little more shape and the LV on both sides. The name plate is the same and my date stamp is 864 LV - where there is not one shown on this bag. I think the inside fabric may also be different - hard to tell. So is the bag listed on Ebay authentic? Is it possible that someone would create a fake bag like this - I imagine that there would be easier styles to replicate? Could this same style bag have different zipper pulls based on where or when it was made? I will try to take a better picture of the pulls. Thank you so much for all of your help!

    I'm pretty sure the bag on ebay is authentic. The seller is pretty reputable. They don't show the date code so I don't know how old the bag is. It appears to have the linen-like lining that you see in some luggage pieces, but you're right it's hard to tell. I was looking at the pictures of your bag and it almost looks like the Vuittonite lining, but it's hard to tell too. To be honest, I had to do quite a bit of searching to come up with the one on ebay. I am not familiar with the history of this style, if perhaps older versions were slightly different than newer versions. Your date code would mean that the bag was made in April 1986. I have never seen LV used as a factory code though and it is not on any of the lists of factory codes out there.

    I don't see anything unusual. They just started making these in the Azur, but the date code is consistent with that. The last three images can't be enlarged for some reason so I am kinda squinting looking at them.

    Actually the Date Code is 864 VI, not LV - I should have put my reading glasses on - so it was made in France in April 1984. I have e-mailed the ebay seller and have asked her for the date code and to describe the lining. My lining feels like coated fabric that would be wipeable - is that Vuittonite lining? I really appreciate you taking all of this time answering my questions. Thank you.

    The Vuittonite lining was sort of a coated fabric. It was seen in the bucket bags. Here's one in Let-Trades gallery, if you scroll down to the bottom there are close-up pictures of the interior.

    Yes, that is what my lining looks like! The same seller from Japan is selling an "Auth Louis Vuitton Monogram Cruise Bag 45 Travel Duffle" which has this same fabric and the same zipper pulls as my bag has - a little shape with the LV. Do you think I can now feel confident that my bag is authentic? Again, you have been so helpful - Thank you!!

    It is quite possible that some of the details were changed on the bag and, like I said before, the alignment/placement of the LV pattern is identical between the two bags.

    Hi! I heard back from lvjapan and she said that there is no heat date stamp on the leather vertical strip inside her bag - so that would make her bag a few years older than mine - right?

    Since I am unfamiliar with the bag, I'm not sure when they started making it. If it doesn't have a date code then it is either a piece that was made before 1980 or it is a French Company piece.

    I forget to mention ,I do not have the bag yet and maybe it will come next week, but the seller said 100% gurantee or money back.
    I look at the pics and compare to other bags pics at luxuryexchange.com or azuma from japan and couple of other ebay LV seller and read their feed backs.
    it looked ok to me , but I am not like you guys and don't know what to look for to spot a fake.
    Please help I can send ebay link to email.
    Many thanks
