    The Moderators for this thread are Lee and Addy. Please do NOT PM them to request an authentication. Please post in this thread.

    NOTE: The Louis Vuitton Bag requests that only members with an extensive knowledge of the brand and authenticating who have over 500 posts participate as authenticators in this AT thread. The moderators reserve the right to remove authentications that do not meet these requirements.


    This is a free service. Our authenticators are volunteers providing their opinions, and who desire to keep counterfeiters and dishonest sellers from profiting from their trade, and to help buyers find authentic items. Authenticators are not required to answer all posts and, for various reasons, some may not be answered.

    It is the preference of the authenticators on this thread not to give authentication to members who buy and resell bags. It is also the preference of the authenticators to give authentication to members who post in a range of threads, not just requesting free authentication for designer items. If your request is not answered here, for whatever reasons, professional authentication services are available outside of PF.

    1. Do a SEARCH and check if the item has been reviewed by one of the senior authenticators before posting a request. Searches can be done via the seller name or by auction/listing number - add * to the beginning and end of the number (eg. *12345678*).

    2. You MUST use the format below when requesting for authentication for auctions or non-auctions:

    Format to use for an auction item:

    Item Name:
    Item Number:
    Seller ID:
    Link: (please make sure link works after you post) Don't post mobile web link.

    Format to use for items from sites of professional seller:

    Item Name (if you know it):
    Link: (please make sure link works after you post)
    Photos: (attach using the paperclip at the top of the message box or upload to photobucket.com and post the links)

    We will not authenticate for those who post photos only and cannot provide link to online auction/sale.

    3. All requests must have clear photos (either in listing and/or provided by member requesting the authentication). This will help expedite authentications. Please ask the seller/use the macro setting on your digi (little flower). If you cannot see the details yourself, neither can we.

    At minimum, pics MUST include:
    - all exterior
    - interior
    - LV heat stamp
    - date code
    - engraving on hardware (ie. zipper pull, lock, rivet, pushlock, screws, etc)

    If the listing or your request does not have the required pics, it will NOT be reviewed. That means if you have not received a response, please check your original posting to ensure all information and pics are present.

    Check out this thread! If you're using Photobucket, don't post mobile photobucket links, pics are too small, post links.

    Authenticators are not required to answer every request, and it is their right to ignore a request that is not in the proper format.

    4. Do NOT make more than 3 requests per post.

    5. Please wait at least 24 hours before bumping your request. Search by seller or item # to ensure that it has not been reviewed (see rule 1). If the auction is ending soon, you may say so in your comments. Remember, we are just like you, and get on tPF when we have time so please be patient.

    6. To ensure that additional pics requested are seen by the authenticators, quote or provide a link to your original request and response. Use the quote feature or copy and paste the url. Failure to do do may result in your query not being answered. Please utilize the quote feature when responding directly to another post.

    7. Comments on price and/or condition are NOT permitted. So please do not ask us for an opinion.

    8. Do NOT PM an authenticator or moderator to request authentication. Any and all such requests must be posted in this thread.

    9. Should one of your items be questioned in this thread, you are welcome to provide additional pictures or materials supporting its authenticity.

    10. Do NOT handle your disputes with other members in this thread. Take your differences to Private Message or just use the REPORT function ( button) to alert the mods, and let them handle it from there. In the meantime, just ignore the poster until a Mod can intervene. Failure to do so can result in banning. Always be respectful when you post and treat others as you expect to be treated. This is an open thread and everyone is welcome to participate.

    All Authenticate This threads on tPF are meant to provide assistance to shoppers who are uncertain about the legitimacy and authenticity of designer goods. The evaluations posted by tPF's members are only opinions that stem from personal experiences as shoppers and collectors. They are not legally binding or professional authentications and are not to be treated as such.

    For questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact the forum administration via the contact form.
  2. My guess is your post will be skipped without a please or thank you to the authenticator. It states it in her signature and it’s nice to say. Thanks...

  4. Please Scroll to the top of this Thread where the Forum rules are & clearly state: We require a Valid Link to Sale/Auction to authenticate. We also do not authenticate Private items (No Link). Please use a paid third party authentication service for a small fee. Simply Google paid services. I strongly recommend you do so. Also, Please Do Not upload pictures onto any other Thread until you have confirmation of Authenticity. Thank you for understanding and Good Luck! :smile:
  5. Hello and welcome! :smile:

    Sorry! But Listing pictures are inadequate, way too far away, way too blurry & Missing ALL required pictures needed to authenticate. Insufficient pictures to give any sort of opinion either way. Pictures need to be taken in Natural Lighting, UP Close, Straight on Without Flash/Glare. Please Read Required pics carefully. Thank you! :smile:

  6. Hello. It’s possible your request is being skipped because all of your requests are for authentications. Please read the requirements on the top of the page. You may want to post in other areas of the forum than just asking for authentications. Thanks..

  7. Hello @lovlouisvuitton and @LVlvoe_bug I wanted to apologize for my previous request I didn't mean to come off rude I just totally forgot to add a kind note to it mainly because I was focusing on not to messing up on the format. None the less I am very sorry for being rude. Also I wanted to say that about my request, I was actually able to purchase that item brand new from CS, even though before they told me it was going to be discontinued. So I wanted to "cancel" that request. Thank you for your time.
