    Default Authentic Ebay LV Tikal GM?

    Does this purse look authentic? Seller says guaranteed, absolutely. But the tag with the heat stamp has five stitches on the sides/eight on top and bottom (and I see now that an authentic Tikal GM from Bag, Borrow and Steal has a tag with 6/9. Does Louis Vuitton vary the tag stitching like this on the same model of bag?). Also, words on handle look larger than the one listed on Bag, Borrow. Please help! One other thing--a Google search for the Tikal GM Louis Vuitton brings up all sorts of fake replica bag sellers with bags that look like the one I bid on from ebay (same date stamp, even!). Do these sellers possibly use stock photos of authentic bags or is there the great chance that the bag I purchased came from one of these sellers? Any help is really, really appreciated!
    ebay item # is 290665479587



    Thanks!

    Hi,


    Just bought a LV purse (suede with the looks of crocodile leather at least it smells like leather ;-) and velours/suedemarktplaats 001.JPGmarktplaats 002.JPGmarktplaats 003.JPG in a Amsterdam second hand design vintage shop.

    Its pretty old (i guess 30 years) but...is it real?
    The metal plate says depose en france etalétranger, louis vuitton inventeur 101 avenue des champs elyssees, paris. The back of the plate has nr ok 0973628 okpta1519426. The inside has leather as well at the zipp pocket. I will include some pictures.. Hopefully you know something of this bag...

    I have never seen anything even remotely like this. It doesn't look authentic though.

    The number of stitches on the heat stamped patch isn't the only thing of concern. The zipper pull is not consistent with others I have looked at. The triangular tabs on the straps (where the leather is folded over the brass ring and then stitched to itself) are off in shape. They are elongated compared to the other ones I looked at and the number of stitches there is not consistent either.

    Here are some good pictures of an authentic one.

    Thanks for the information!--that's sort of what I was worried about...now let's hope the seller takes it back since he claimed authenticity guaranteed absolutely.

    I will keep my eyes open. You don't see this bag very often.
