i just bought the epi montaigne from elux, and it appeared to be perfect, except i noticed that the "made in france" stamp was crooked. i'm up at school right now, and there are zilch boutiques near campus, and the closest fedex is 1 hour away, so returning the bag isn't the simplest task. since LV has such a problem with counterfeit pieces, i think it's really important to have a bag without imperfections because flaws/mistakes stimulate questions of authenticity. i've never sold any bags from my collection, but who knows what the future holds, someday i might need the cash. personally, if i was looking for a second-loved LV and saw a crooked stamp, i'd run for the hills. would you return the bag?
