    I know the interior is suede but for some reason the color of it looks off. Do you have a picture of the bottom of the bag and the date code?

    Default Louis Vuitton Handbag: Please authenticate this purse, Speedy

    Hi, I'm new here and I have a Louis Vuitton I found in my closet. Silly I know, I don't remember if I purchases it or it was given to me. Anyways, the research I have done makes it seem like its real but you never know. it does have some greening around the rivets and where the handles meet the bag, and I do remember something about the zipper being fixed so it doesn't seem to be fixed to well.

    I'll post the best pictures I can my boyfriend has our really nice camera and I can't find our other so I just have my iphone. Thanks :)

    You have an authentic French Company Speedy, not sure if it's a 25 or 30.

    2001 Much Loved Petit Bucket very darkened leather

    What year did LV start producing the Buckets in Vachetta versus Normade?
    They did not always produce the totally nude Vachetta leather, right?
    Thanks

    The bucket bag? You're talking about the darker, treated leather trim? I haven't seen any non-French Company buckets that had that sort of trim. If they did produce them, it was for sure before 2001 because all the ones I have seen have had the Vachetta.

    I think they're talking about the all vachetta Bucket. The oldest ones I've seen are from 1998, but there may be older ones that I just haven't seen. Do you have any pictures of it?

    Ooooooh! LOL! Sorry, dumb me.

    So I found one in Let-Trade's archives. It says it is Nomade and it just so happens to be from 2001. Perhaps that will help?

    Default Louis Vuitton Luggage Bag : Please authenticate

    The leather is quality as well as the stitching, the only thing that throws me off is the botton of bag, it feels like cardboard on the inside bottom, does anyone know if vintage louie would have cardboard instead of leather

    Your bag is a replica Almond. This style was NEVER made by LV. Please go here to and scroll down and you will see what I am talking about:

    Hi again: There is a seam at the bottom of the bag and the LV's don't match up and are cut off by the seam- Also the Date Code is EF7890. Please advise- I will send pix later

    rhondal, by the date code alone, it means that bag is a replica. LV never uses EF as a letter combo (ET would be the closest match) and also the number combo would make the dates impossible (either 90th month of 1978 (late 80s to early 90s letter/number combo) or 78th month of 1990 (1990's to late 2000's letter/number combo)
