So there is some advice going around the authentification board that paddys with interior plastic zippers are fake. This is information is incorrect. In efforts to streamline our paddy authentification tips I would like to know how many of you have plastic vs. metal interior zips. Please state the year of your bag as well. Mine is a 2005 chocolate paddy, from Saks, with plastic interior zippers. ***Also, maybe we can clarify some other debunkers. Add the ones you know! *** 1) Not all paddy zippers have the YKK engravement 2) Not all serial numbers are uniform 3) Some 2005 interior canvas lining is a different color than 2006. For example, the chocolate 2005 has beige interior canvas lining while 2006's have brown.
