    Me too! I will check if she can send better pics and receipt!

    Thanks again!

    Ya, know, as I am sitting here comparing my Mahina to this one, I see a lot of differences. I have a black one, so maybe it is supposed to be different, but I think it is probably a fake. For example, the straps on the side only appear to have 2 holes in which to adjust the straps, mine has 5. The stitching on the square part where the handles attatch to the bag looks very sloppy on this mahina, mine is perfect like on all lv bags. And the bottom of this one almost looks square where mine is actually oval. Also, the picture LV has on the website of the white mahina also has more than 2 holes on the adjustable side straps. I am sure it is fake.........

    Thats good enough for me!! Usually when it is good to be true, it really is! Thanks so much!! She came back and said the lowest she could possibly go would be 1100 and I hadn't even asked....

    Thanks again!!

    JHM, I am sorry I can't help you with that collection! I would wait and see what the other members say.

    So.... if the logos dont match up at the handles (for example, from this view: )

    ....does that automatically mean it's a fake? What if they're slightly off center from each other?

    It looks good to me... What problem did that person find in it? (the one who "authenticated" it for you).

    thanks viva, they said that the rivets, heat stamp (front and back of leaf) "louis vuitton made in.." and "30" didn't look quite right..... so I emailed the seller and said that someone claims it to be fake, and she said she bought it herself from a local LV store and would provide me the receipt and if i found it to be fake she'll have to get a reply off the LV store that its fake...

    heres the photo of the date code and underside of leaf...

    ^^ I am sorry that I can't help you with Damier. Everything looks good to me but then again the Damier is easier to fake than the mono. Sorry, I would wait for more opinions.

    *Just an FYI, Louis Vuitton will NOT provide you with any documentation if the bag turns out to be fake. Some sellers say that they need documentation from an LV store manager but the stores do not offer that service.*

    JHM - I got your pm. I don't see anything wrong with the bag. The font looks fine to me and everything looks to be where its supposed to be. The only thing I noticed out of the ordinary was how new the bag looks. Like when you look at the date code, the leather is so neat looking.

    LV can tell you if it is fake but they can NOT give you any documentation saying so.

    Good Luck!
