    Default Re: Would you mind telling me whether this is a real LV or not?

    The bag that I just posted was just kept without care. flattened and folded in order to save space. This has no data code. The lining is moldy and dirty because of the time it was never attended. I never got to use this bag. This picture was taken and sent to a restorer to assess the cost for restoration.

    I don't see anything that would be a cause for concern. They are a new seller on ebay. The listing says they are experienced in selling used items like this. Have you tried contacting them to get the business's name? Perhaps you can research them that way.

    ebay has a pretty good anti fraud system too. If the bag isn't what they report it to be, you can also get a refund from ebay. Just make sure you pay using paypal.

    Identify theTrue or Fake of Louis Vuitton Briefcase
    Materials: it is the first generation of Louis Vuitton briefcase. Since from 1896, it has been the symbol of Louis Vuitton briefcase and last for a long time.
    ②DAIMER case two-color canvas: the checkerboard pattern start from 1888 and re-launch by the elegant and delicate characteristics in 1996.
    ③Embossment: there are seven colours : black, brown, green, yellow, blue, red and orange. And there is only a LV logo in the lower right corner of the modern colored embossed leather.
    ④ Opera striae: Smooth and embossed to create a strong contrast to the only two black and red opera.It is a feminine design with unique embossment.
    ⑤ Daya Leather: In addition to the green colour of coniferous forests, there is a new series of dark brown, purple mahogany whose leather are soft.
    ⑥ MONOGRAMVERNIS: based on the traditional monogram pattern, in young and lively colors sush as milk sugar and water color which symbolizing the dynamic of a new era.

    Smile Please help Authenticate this LV Cabas bag

    Hi, I am looking to purchase this bag off of craigslist. Seller has item posted as Cabas Mezzo, but looks more like the piano. She is willing to meet at neiman Marcus to authenticate, but I've read that sometimes staff may not be willing to assist.

    Date code VI 0051

    http://austin.craigslist.org/clo/3147678190.html

    I'm new to the forum so I wasn't able to add a link or upload a photo.

    Thank you!

    Default Authentication information needed on Piano tote PLS HELP WITH OPINIONS

    I recently got a Piano tote, I need help with authentication questions for now. If Pics are needed let me know.

    what are the zipper pulls covered in when they are manufactured - mine still had paper and tape/plastic over it - seems like a fake as sales associates are told to remove them - any suggestions on truth?

    a piano with the date code sp0025 is to be made in feb of 05 - I read that in Spring 05 LV changed things, no rivet on the d-ring tab and no zipper inside bag on pocket - This Piano bag has both - AGAIN, OPINION on this - is it true, where can I double check this information ???

    lastly, I read that stitching is important. Is it possible that there is a knot/loop in the stiching on the handle where the stitching ends - anyone ever see this on an authentic purse.

    I appreciate your thoughts, I think I have a replica/fake on my hands that I have to confirm to alert the seller to get a refund, so I can then go find an authentic for myself.

    Many thanks

    Looks like a Piano. I don't see anything unusual about it.

    Pictures are helpful. I know changes were made, but I can't remember what. @Zombiegirl might know, I think she had one.

    Thank you very much for the info. I am very new to this so I am unsure how to post pics or to contact the other member. Any assistance would be appreciated, and I do appreciate you taking the time to respond.
