Authenticate This CHANEL
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.


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 more simple 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:

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 photos (all authentication must include photos).




  • Authenticators are not required to answer every request and it is their right to ignore a request that is not in the proper format.
  • 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.


Should one of your items be questioned in this thread, you are welcome to provide additional pictures or materials 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.
Please utilize the "Quote" feature when responding directly to another post.

Hi Ladies,

Plse help me with this below....THX again.... if they don't have a hologram, does it mean it is fake?

Item: CHANEL Black Lambskin Double Gold Chain Flap Bag USED
Item link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110500273773&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT
Item #: 110500273773

No, we cannot say all bags without hologram sticker are fake.
But for this one, can you ask seller for a close up picture of the zipper head under the flap? I would like to see the stamp on the zipper head.

I'm so sorry that we do not authenticate for resellers here. You may get other paid authentication services provided by other professional authenticators.

Link (if available): None
Seller: Private seller
Who took the pictures: Me
History of the bag: Recently bought this bag from another pf'er.
Comments:
Please could you authenticate this bag, I am alittle concerned with it's misalignment (both front and back), also the silver stud above the 'cc' on the inner flap isn't central and the hologram sticker is green! alot more greener than shown in my pics as the flash from the camera made it look less green! (maybe the bag has been redyed at some point? :huh:) The gold flecks on the hologram sticker are also green and not gold!
Thank you very much.





Just uploading additional pics...

Hi there,

I post the below in the last thread, however the seller has added a photo of the screws from the back of the CC turnlock.

If I can get a second view of authentication will be great.

Thanks for your time.

Some of the pictures on auction page did not show up. Ask seller to send you a close up picture of the hologram sticker and post here when you get it.
