Hi! I am a newbie to this, so hope I'm doing this right?? I'm interested in this alma bag, but don't know if it's authentic or not. Reason I question authenticity: 1. Seller states the brass handles have tarnished a bit (and says this is normal wear and tear with LV's) really?? 2. There is no inside pocket for cell phone, just one interior pocket (contrary to 2 inside pockets on LV website) ...... could this be b/c it was made before cell phones where used??? I've attached some pictures for you to check out. I would really appreciate your help. thanks kindly, -k.
