Please post authenticity questions related to CHANEL in this thread. This thread is a continuation of the previous authentication thread that has been closed for posting: http://forum.purseblog.com/chanel-s...ead-rules-use-format-outlined-1st-763064.html


Please follow the following rules:

Before you submit a request for authentication, please search this thread to make sure that the item has not previously been authenticated. This is in order to prevent duplication requests and to make it simpler for people to 'search' for items which may have been posted previously. This is not a thread to ask general questions about CHANEL, please refer to our main CHANEL forum for such information.

This is a free service, but it is imperative that you help our authenticators by using the following format:

Item:
Listing number:
Seller:
Link:
Comments:

If the bag in question is not on an auction site, please use the following:

Item Name (if you know it):
Link (if available):
Seller:
Who took the pictures:
History of the bag:
Comments:

Please give us as much information as you can and then attach any pictures (all authentication must include pictures).


  • Authenticators are not required to answer every request and it is their right to ignore a request that is not in the proper format.
  • Authenticators are not employed by tPF and do not represent tPF.
  • Please note that comments on price and condition are NOT permitted.
  • Please limit your request to one (1) per post; otherwise it gets too confusing keeping them all straight.
  • Do NOT PM an authenticator or moderator to request authentication. Any and all such requests must be posted in this thread.
  • To ensure that additional pictures requested are seen by the authenticators, please utilize the quote feature or provide a link to your original request and response. Failure to do so may result in your query not being answered.
Should one of your items be questioned in this thread, you are welcome to provide additional pictures or materials briefly supporting its authenticity.
Do not handle your disputes with other members in this thread but take your differences to Private Messages. Failure to do so can result in banning.

in other page was said, that I need to write it down here again, so sorry, if I misunderstood something and this will be as a double post :smile:

Please authenticate this bag for me :smile:

Item Name : CHANEL Camellia Classic Wallet On Chain (black)
Who took the pictures: I, myself
History of the bag: My friend got this bag as a gift from guys, she met for first (and only) time, so I can't tell what history does this bag have, or from where it came from.
Comments: It didn't come with authenticity card, or sack, or box, just wallet itself.

If You need any other information and/or photos, please, let me know. Thank You for Your help!

All photos for authentification, as I far as I know with them should be enough -you will find here: http://s1280.beta.photobucket.com/user/Paula_Rucina/library/Chanel Camellia Shoulder Wallet
