hi guys, bought the violet city off *bay recently, posted the auction link in the "authenticate this" thread & posted pictures of it when after i received it. both received yays however, the other day i noticed that one of the rivets were slightly off. panicked & brought the bag to my local boutique where the SA checked the bales, metal tag in the interior, etc & said she believed it was authentic coz of the leather (it smells exactly the same as my first b-bag ) but if i wanted to be sure, i could send it back to italy to let the "experts" check it. am still not satisfied with her reply coz we went during closing time & they were in a rush to leave. what do you guys think? would this possibly be an authentic bag with a defective rivet (all the other 3 rivets check out) or could this possibly be a very good fake? have included pictures, they might be quite big though. btw, if this happened to be fake, what recourse do i have? http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2304/2126362672_a1ffb7cce9_b.jpg http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2255/2125587571_fae56ab958.jpg?v=0 http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2066/2125588987_2536c5011f_b.jpg http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2066/2125588987_2536c5011f_b.jpg http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2066/2125588987_2536c5011f_b.jpg http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2194/2126368912_86b0cc9265.jpg?v=0 http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2315/2126370212_d125d6da3b.jpg?v=0 http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2195/2126371694_955f54e997_b.jpg--> rivet on the left seems off http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2194/2125597211_e2b2a94449_b.jpg http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2194/2125597211_e2b2a94449_b.jpg http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2091/2125599721_60b4b5636d_b.jpg --> defect or fake? http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2282/2125601221_5c62190afd.jpg?v=0 --> all other 3 looks like this http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2109/2125602507_6d5e5bffae.jpg?v=0 http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2012/2125604933_9506afbe69.jpg?v=0 thanks for your help!!
