Question about LV Black Epi Speedy 25

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just got a used black epi speedy 25 and noticed the tab that says "Louis Vuitton" doesn't say "Paris Made in France" but instead "Made in France" is on the inside pocket. Is that correct? Were some bags made that way? Thank you!!!

Here are pics from the the bag I have (from the listing):

Oh no!!!!!!... here are more pics: AUTHENTIC LOUIS VUITTON BLACK EPI SPEEDY 25 BAG GOOD - eBay (item 170193098818 end time Feb-17-08 18:06:14 PST)

I posted a few on TPF before I bought and one person said it looked ok. Just when I got it I noticed the tab and thought it looked strange.

honestly i don't think it's authentic

i've never seen the "made in france" on the lining of the inside pocket.. and the stamp and font of the datecode inside is kinda wrong too.. it's too thick and too high.. and also, VL doesn't really make sense.. and of course the leather tab outside.. but that's just my opinion.. wait for others

and the other auction of the same seller.. this bag is made a year after that.. AUTHENTIC LOUIS VUITTON BLUE EPI SPEEDY 30 BAG GREAT - eBay (item 350027473103 end time Feb-25-08 17:25:04 PST)

i just see big differences between the 2.. but again.. me no expert

The date code is actually VI... but there are periods between the letters so it looks like an L... but I see what you mean. I'm freaking out now. I'm going to contact MyPoupette also. Thanks for your help!!
