    ^^^ Actually, it would have been made in January of this year. I agree that the leather looks really light, but it could be the lighting too since it looks like it is in natural sunlight.

    Made in the 4th week of 2011 means it could have bee delivered to the store anytime in February, so if she purchased it in Feb or March and didn't use it, that would explain the lightness of the vachetta. How much is the coworker asking for the bag? I guess I'm just wondering why she would have just purchased the bag and then already is selling it. I would have your mom ask the coworker to see the receipt for the bag.

    Hi..

    I'm confused.. I thought the date code would be 04 April of 2011 Jan would be 01 I thought the first and third numbers are the month and the second and forth is the year?

    Thanks for the clearing that up.. All this time I was thinking it was the months! I would add the two to get the month made.. You learn
    something new everyday. I do agree, why would someone sell it so fast! And, what are they selling it for? The Receipt would be a nice touch.

    Thanks, ladies! She's asking $630 and apparently her boyfriend bought it for her and things didn't "work out" with them.

    Date codes prior to 2007 were staggered month and year. Starting in 2007, they changed the format so that the numbers that used to represent the month now represent the week of the year. So you had it right, it just doesn't apply to bags made 2007 or later.

    If it was a gift from her boyfriend, she might not have a receipt. But the LV store would have a record. Maybe you could go with her to the store and they could tell you that her boyfriend did buy said bag? Not sure if they would give that info out to someone other than the person in their records.

    If you have them on a photobucket or similar site, then you can post the address here by putting spaces in (so it's not recognized as a link). Make sure your album is public.

    Hey ladies,
    I have been "gifted" with this "LV" bag ages ago, and for some reason... I'm not feeling it - not a fan of the style, and to be honest it looks a little off to me...
    It has been sitting in my closet for years! The person who gave it to me claims the bag is a "vintage piece" - I on the other hand have a hard time believing that.
    So if you ladies can be kind and help me out with this "vintage" mystery Is this bag a real or a fake?

    Thank you all
    xoxo
    A

    p.s. I made a thread in regards to my question, before realizing I should post here.
