HELP identify my clutch!!

  1. Hi everyone, I have a green, EPI leather clutch that was given to me from a business associate from the UK. This woman is terrible "posh", and I KNOW its a real LV. I have learned about the "code date", and after looking and looking I found it! I was so excited, it was tucked near the side seam toward the back of the bag. It's hard to read, but I am pretty sure it says 872 M something. I used it the one time and that was all, and she does not want it back, and I want to sell it on eBay this coming week. I can't find ANY information on this bag, and I am thinking it is really an older style. Oh, it looks just like an "envelope". It looked great with my little black dress, but I know I will never use it again, its just too small for me, I need to carry my "stuff", you know! Can anyone help me please, since I am not a LV collector. I am thinking I have a clutch here that is worth a couple of hundred dollars. I would appreciate any feed back fromyou gals, because I know your all much more into LV than I ever will be. Thank you. Marilyn
     
  2. A picture would of course help, but from your description I think it´s the Epi envelope clutch. Don´t think there is a special name for it.
     
  3. WOW, thank you SOOO MUCH!! That yellow/gold colored one is almost EXACTLY the same. The one I have does not have a zipper inside, and the inside is a smooth leather. Did that one sell for $195.00 US dollars? Boy, thank you so very much, you really, really helped me. At least I know where to start with an e-bay price. I appreciate it so much! Marilyn
     
  4. NOPE not that one. It did look like that "yellow" one in the above link. It looks just like an envelope. I am going to start the bidding at $125.00 cause I hate all that dragging on and on and on. It's a nice clutch, I think it will sell. If you can answer one more question...do LV bags get MORE valuable as they get older and dis-continued? I would think they do. anyway, thank you everyone for all the help. Marilyn
     
  5. but I´ve never seen green epi, marylin, are u sure is green?
     
  6. oh now I saw it, sorry I guess I lost sth, hehe I never in my life saw green epi... weird thing I never minded though...
     
  7. Well, this bag is way before you time, if I am reading that date code, it was made in 1972!! I have it up on e bay now, go see how I did!! Marilyn
     
  8. actually your date code says that your bag was made in July of 1982 :yes:
     
  9. Ohhhhh, see I didn't know that!!! Well, it just goes to show your a REAL LV collector.!!!
     
  10. WAIT A MINUTE..how does 872 work out to be JULY, 1982????? Why would they seperate the date that way? That doesn't sound right.
     
  11. ^^That was the way the old date codes were laid out...7 represents July (7th month) and 82 is the year.
     
  12. 872 means February 1987
     
  13. Is this it?
