Need Help Authenticating Gucci Before Bidding

  1. Hi All,

    I have been a long time reader of this forum. I have seen the Canal Street knock-offs first hand and they are atrocious as far as I'm concerned. My biggest fear is to end up carrying one. My future mother-in-law has fake LV's, DB's, and more and she couldn't be more naive about how horrid they are. They look completely fake but I can't bear to tell her.

    I have always been a Coach and Dooney girl but I'm hoping to upgrade to a nice Gucci bag in the very near future. I can't bring myself to pay the insanely high prices at the Gucci store so I'm hunting for a good deal on eBay. I know eBay is crawling with counterfeit handbags and I'm so scared that I will end up with one.

    Can anyone take a look at these 3 auctions and tell me if they think these could be fakes? I have never owned a Gucci bag so I don't have a trained eye like most of you ladies. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! Glad to be here. :p

  2. I just realized that this site has a forum dedicated to authenticating various designer bags. Sorry for posting this in the wrong place.
