    Hello, like you all know I had the house fire not too long ago, but I got out this old piece of LV luggage that was given to me as a gift from one of my aunts. She said she got it at an estate sale or something and I'm not sure if it's authentic. It has some burnt marks on it and other damage but I want to see if it's real before I take it somewhere to get fixed, otherwise I don't know what I'm gonna do with it!!




    I'll post more pictures if I need to.

    My rule of thumb, although I'm sure people will disagree, is that if it's old, it's authentic. Some bags were made to look old, but when it really is you can always tell.

    ^ I agree to some extent but they were making fakes in the 80's too.

    iheartmjnicole - It looks good to me, but to be sure I would take it to LV because they can send it off to be properly restored for you!!

    I wouldn't worry about it. Just tell them the story...
    Think about how FAB it will be once it is restored!!

    By looking at it, it looks fine, but I think the things that really tell if it's LV need to be shown - date code, heat stamp, etc.
