Thank you so much! I probably won't be buying many more, but I love the classic vintage Gucci bags!

My zippers (original) are very distinctive: brass cloured, no writing, have little ridges, sharp and pointy pulls and with brown leather tags to make them even longer. They are also brown to match the bag so IMO the zipper in your bag was changed probably as a repair. Sorry. I will try to remember to take pics of my zippers for you to show. Please remind me again if I dont get back to you.
And thank you so much for checking your zipper pulls. If it's not the original, Gucci probably won't help with lining replacement, but it's still a nice and unique bag. Thanks again!!!

If it's real it's called a Gucci Royal Hobo

Thank you so much papertiger!!
My pleasure. When they get to travel size they are usually called 'Messanger' although strictly it isn't

My post should say 'traditional' NOT 'rational' - my iPad has an irrational mind of its own

The hardware and styling suggests 2005 although I have never actually seen this bag IRL. Over 45cm would suggest a weekender
Thanks for the answer. I'll try to find more info. I hope it's an authentic bag. I'll have to wait for the fake master on the other thread to answer me

Also, it has braided handles!
Looks like a Pelham. Did you authenticate it?

Item Name (if you know it): Do Not Know
Link (if available): n/a
Seller: purchased at a yard sale
Who took the pictures: me
History of the bag: I just bought this bag at a yard sale sale. Honestly, they were selling it for a $1, I bought it because I thought it was cute, but, as I started looking at it, it made me wonder if it is a true vintage bag.
Comments:
Interior feels like very soft chamois like leather material. Smells of leather. Zipper is a YKK, zipper charm has no color loss, is not chipping, etc. Stitching is straight, all edging is leather. Leather strap.

I'm more curious than anything if it is real!

It is a vintage 1980s piece and a very good one, a document case from the travel collection though so no name.

I hate to be a pest, but would you mind sharing photos of your bag and the zipper pulls? I noticed the outside tab on mine says "Victory" but the zipper pull on the inside pocket says "Three Star". The pocket lining is plain brown.

Thanks again for all of your help. Your expertise is much appreciated!
