Before I came across this forum last week, I purchased a Guccisima Black Pelham and a beige/ebony GG fabric Pelham medium bags on eBay. Little did I know that that move was a big mistake. As soon as I got to reading the posts and other links regarding authenticity, I immediately returned the beige/ebony GG fabric Pelham. I was hoping that the Guccisima will be authentic because the seller stated that she bought it at the Gucci store in Dallas, I was surprise to find out that I now have doubts regarding its authenticity. For those of you that have a guccisima pelham could you answer these questions... Does the tab closure snap say YIK FUNG? Is the inside lining fabric green & black OR red & black? Is the inside pocket zipper engraved with GUCCI? Is the leather trim grainy or has a smooth texture? For anybody who can answer, do you know where I can have these authenticated. The seller is asking for one before he can deal with this. Thanks in advance for the help.
