    This doesn't look authentic.

    Default Vuitton President Classeur Briefcase Authentication

    Hello Everyone! I'm in awe of the expertise of the authenticators! I've been shopping around for a briefcase and I'm in love with the Louis Vuitton Monogram President Classeur. I've tracked down an unusual one advertised on Portero. I'm hoping the images I've attached can be seen clearly enough. My worries about its authenticity are as follows (please tell me if I'm on the wrong track):

    (i) on the heat stamp, it says "made in france" (lower-case "f"), whereas on all the other Vuitton things I've seen, the stamp says "made in France" (upper-case "F");
    (ii) the dimensions (16 x 13 x 3) don't match the usual dimensions for a President Classeur (17.3 x 13.4 x 4.3).

    The description says "this particular model has since been discontinued", which might explain (ii), but to my newbie ear, that phrase sounds suspicious.

    The date code seems to be OK (CO8909).

    I'd be so grateful for someone's help!

    Hmm, I thought Portero sold authentic stuff. They were even recommended on this forum. I do find the date code a little odd since I thought the letters followed the numbers back then.

    Thanks for replying, bRs! Do you have any thoughts on "made in france" vs. "made in France"?

    I think it is okay. I heard somewhere that some vintage stuff from the 80s and early 90s have "made in france".

    That's reassuring! What's your instinct on this bag? I've been puzzling about how to find out whether LV made this smaller version of the President Classeur in the late 80s, but I can't track down catalogues from that era. Have you any idea how to go about doing that? The things we do for our beloved bags!

    Thanks again for all your help.

    I'm going to go with authentic. Vintage stuff can be tricky sometimes, but Portero has a pretty good reputation.

    I didn't see any feet. I was looking at the colors and alignment. Plus the lining looks fake (the material doesn't look like that) and the "date code" is black.
