I have just aquired a vintage GUCCI that has the gold plate inside with the style of writing of Gucci and it says made in mexica with the date from the 1980's. It's over 20 years old,but there is no serial number underneath the leather tag that the gold plate is attatched to. Did Gucci allow mexico to make and sell them because of a complicated family related license issue and because at one time Gucci was from Mexico? This is what i was told. This is the first one i have collected that is old that says made in mexico,so i was wondering if is authentic or not. Thanks for any reply.
