    This doesn't look right to me. Was there ever HF for a factory code? Plus the date code looks weird in general, it's crooked and shallow.

    Thanks so much! I've looked around a bit and I think I really want the Stephen Sprouse Neverfull. Thoughts on that vs speedy? This is my first LV purchase and I love the roses collection. I found this neverfull on eBay, but really don't know where to look to find an authentic bag. I appreciate your help!!!

    Item #: 140612841126. This is the eBay listing for the neverfull

    Whoops, sorry, I didn't see this. I personally like the NF. I guess it depends on if you want a shoulder bag or a satchel.

    From what I can see, it looks okay. I'm not familiar with the seller, but it looks like they sell LV pretty regularly.

    I bought this LV Cherry Blossom purse at an estate sale and am trying to find out if it is real. It is the right weight (ie. nice and heavy), stitching looks good and straight, interior pocket seems to be what I would expect. However, the seller did not know the shape/style name. I'd really appreciate it if you all could give me an opinion on it. I am hoping I got lucky and found a real one!!

    I have attached the pics since I can't yet post a link.

    Thanks!!

    It doesn't look authentic. I'm going with Fake.

    Thanks for giving me an opinion...can you tell me what I should have noticed that makes it look fake?

    They never make this bag for the Cherry Blossom collection. So I suppose that would be a dead giveaway if you knew what they did and did not make. If you don't know, then that makes it harder. It looks like the maker went through a bit of trouble, since the bag looks nice. A clue though is that the lining is suede (at least it looks like suede in the picture). The lining should be alcantara, which is a plush microfiber type fabric. The date code would be stamped right into the fabric and it would be located near a seam (sometimes it's hard to see it when the bag is older because it fades). The date code wouldn't be on a tab beneath the LV heat stamp. Regular monogram styles with the canvas lining will have a tab, but it will be normally be along a seam as well or inside a pocket (varies by style). But the Cherry Blossom collection has the alcantara lining. Hopefully that helps.

    I'm not terribly good with vintage stuff. That being said, I don't really see why someone would think this is fake. Did they say why?
