1. Do a SEARCH and check if the item has been reviewed by one of the authenticators before posting a request. Searches can be done via the seller name or by auction/listing number - add * to the beginning and end of the number (eg. *12345678*).

2. You MUST use the format below when requesting for authentication for auctions or non-auctions:

Format to use for an auction item:

Item Name:
Item Number:
Seller ID:
Link: (please make sure link works after you post)

Format to use for non-auction item:

Item Name (if you know it):
Link (if available):(please make sure link works after you post)
Photos: (attach using the paperclip at the top of the message box or upload to photobucket.com and post the [IMG] links)

3. All requests must have clear photos (either in listing and/or provided by member requesting the authentication). This will help expedite authentications. Please ask the seller/use the macro setting on your digi (little flower). If you cannot see the details yourself, neither can we.

Authenticators are not required to answer every request, and it is their right to ignore a request that is not in the proper format or does not have pics.

4. Do NOT make more than 3 requests per post.

5. Please wait at least 24 hours before bumping your request. Search by seller or item # to ensure that it has not been reviewed (see rule 1). If the auction is ending soon, you may say so in your comments. Remember, we are just like you, and get on tPF when we have time so please be patient.

6. To ensure that additional pics requested are seen by the authenticators, quote or provide a link to your original request and response. Use the quote feature or copy and paste the url. Failure to do do may result in your query not being answered. Please utilize the quote feature when responding directly to another post.

7. Comments on price and/or condition are NOT permitted.

8. Do NOT PM an authenticator or moderator to request authentication. Any and all such requests must be posted in this thread.

9. Should one of your items be questioned in this thread, you are welcome to provide additional pictures or materials supporting its authenticity.


10. Do NOT handle your disputes with other members in this thread. Take your differences to Private Message or just use the REPORT function ( button) to alert the mods, and let them handle it from there. In the meantime, just ignore the poster until a Mod can intervene. Failure to do so can result in banning. Always be respectful when you post and treat others as you expect to be treated. This is an open thread and everyone is welcome to participate.

Hi!

The pictures are not enough to authenticate this bag. Maybe ask the seller for more detailed pictures of the front, the back, the sides, the base, the inside (where the valentino tag and the zipper pull are).

MGA is right again, but I do know this seller is reputable. I believe it to be authentic.

I'm so sorry, my earlier post said the craigslist posting was authentic, when I actually meant the eBay posting is authentic. The black and white paliettes bag is good, the histoire is trickier.
I know that Gold Histoire was made at one point in time, but there still aren't enough pics to authenticate. The need to show the underside of the zipper and if there's a serial number, they should include a pic of that too. Although I think this bag might be too old to have a serial number.

The bag looks good, but please request a picture of the serial code tag that should be inside the bag (maybe in the inside pocket)

I think it should have the serial code. The metallic leather looks too similar to the leather on my gold catch and that one has the serial code, so maybe both bags are from around the same season.

Hello Valentino experts I am not familiar with Valentino. What do you generally look for in terms of authentication? Do all Valentino bags have a serial code?

A relative gave brought me back a small "Valentino" bag after a trip to Italy. I doubt she would give a kid (it's from the late 90's) an $$$ bag. It's synthetic so it's becoming "sticky" and dust is sticking all over it. I'm not sure whether to toss it.

Actually, a tell-a-tale sign is that there are 3 letters in between the top of the V logo : "jer" in italics.

Doesn't sound ideal, however, I do not know older versions of Valentino. Sorry!
