Hi all, I have been lingering around the lv forum for a while as I ran into it one day when I googled "25 vs 30 speedy" and ever since then, i've been on here trying to figure out which size speedy I want (based on the photos posted). Well, my birthday is in a few days and guess what I received as an early birthday present from my sister? The speedy 30!!! The only problem is, I've never carried an LV purse before, and I'm not too sure what to expect. I have no idea where she purchased the bag (and i'm not too sure if she knows her LVs enough to determine whether the speedy she purchased is authentic or not). I love the bag, but I really can't carry it unless I know for sure it's authentic. So basically, I need some help with determining authentification..because i thought it was strange that there were only two tags that came with the purse: one that is white and says SPEEDY 30 and below the "speedy 30" has a barcode; the other tag is an off-white color that says Louis vuitton, Coated fabric...cowhide leather trim. For those of you that have purchased a speedy from the LV boutique, what did you receive with your bag? Please add any other information (that I should look for) that is vital to the authenticity of my speedy, please. Here are some photos (I think, if i post it correctly ush: As I was pulling the tab that had the "30" behind it, i noticed there is a small hole under it..where it attaches the tab to the canvas, is this normal?? And, I just realized that on the side view picture of my speedy, the piping seems..uneven..is this normal too?? Thanks so much for the help!!!
