    Wow, a 20 year old Speedy. I don't see anything that looks suspicious.

    EDIT: I saw your post in the other thread. You said it doesn't have a D ring? That should be on the opposite side from the interior pocket. Is it completely absent or was it maybe removed? I didn't see a picture for that.

    Do you know where it is supposed to be? You know the piece of leather that the date code is embossed on? It is attached to one of those on the opposite side of th bag, away from the pocket. The leather should have been looped under to make a spot for the D ring to hang from.

    This one on ebay has a picture showing the location of the D ring, if that helps.

    That's a good question, I don't know. I tried googling it and that didn't seem to turn up any relevant information. So I decided to look on ebay to see if anyone has pictures of a bag that old. I found one from the 80's that did not have a D-ring. The date code back then was split up between the two rivets though and it is the two rivets opposite of the interior pocket (not behind the pocket). The date code format that is seen on your bag wasn't introduced until the very early 1990's. I found some from 1991 and 1992, but they didn't show pictures of that side (where the D-ring would be). Then I found one from 1994, it did have a D-ring that was visible in a picture. Sorry I can't be of more help. I guess the only way to find out would be to find someone with an authentic Speedy from that year and see if it has the D-ring or not.

    Those are date codes. They don't tell us anything other than the country and date it was manufactured. If you have authentication questions, you can post pics or auction numbers here:

    I don't see anything out of the ordinary. Did they provide a pic of the date code?

    Their pictures are pretty lousy. I can see the date code though. Do they have a clear picture of the heat stamp?

    Hello,

    I've been wanting to buy a Louis Vuitton Artsy MM for quite some time now, and just found one online that from what I've seen is real. Also, the buyer has posted some information about the bag that I can't understand what it stands for. Help please!

    1. N40249 (this couldn't be the date code, could it?! It stands alone without a explanation)
    2 L12438438/79545 14.11.2010 (I understand that the date 14.11.2010 she wrote in the end is the date the bag was purchased, but what does the first lettres and numers stand for?)
