    ********REMINDER******PLEASE READ*********

    In order to avoid forth and back postings, before requesting an authentication, please read post # 2 of this thread (here) for all pictures required for an accurate assessment. Please note that pictures all of the required details need to be of quality: non-angled, crisp and sharp, up close and glare-free. I need to be able to see the detailing and authentications can't be done if pictures are lacking. Also, when posting pictures, pls make sure that they are uploaded straight forward/non-angled, so I won't have to save them on my laptop in order to rotate them to the right angle.

    Once you have all the required photos, please post your request in the following template and fill out the following:
    - Item name:
    - Serial number: (please type out)
    - Listing number: (eBay listing #, site listing #, or if applicable)
    - Seller: (seller ID)
    - Link: (link to the sellers listing in eBay or other selling site. Either active, or expired)
    - Comments:

    Please note: If your request has no valid link to the listing (that's still active, or has ended) and you already bought/are the owner of the bag, you would need to post a login shot.
    Login shot: the bag in front of your device while logged into your tPF account (showing your username). Example here
    You can only post a login shot if the item is in your possession.
    No login shot is needed if you can provide a valid link.


    * I will not do authentications without a without a valid link, or login shot.

    * Currently I also don't authenticate items from social media sites like Instagram and Facebook, nor do I authenticate RTW and footwear.

    * If you need an urgent authentication and time is of the essence, please consider using a paid service.

    * Also please limit your request to one item per post.

    Thanks all!!

    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-shopping/authenticate-this-chanel-read-the-rules-and-use-890008.html

    The PurseForum requests that only members with an extensive knowledge of the brand and authenticating who have over 500 posts participate as authenticators in this AT thread. The moderators reserve the right to remove authentications that do not meet these requirements.

    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:
    Serial Number:
    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):
    SERIAL NUMBER:
    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). 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. Please provide photos taken with an actual camera. Cell phone pictures rarely provide good details.

    -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.

    Disclaimer

    All Authenticate This threads on tPF are meant to provide assistance to shoppers who are uncertain about the legitimacy and authenticity of designer goods. The evaluations posted by tPF's members are only opinions that stem from personal experiences as shoppers and collectors. They are not legally binding or professional authentications and are not to be treated as such. Authenticators only represent themselves individually, not necessarily other authenticators or the staff of tPF.

  4. I know this auction doesn't fullfill the photo requirements, but since I only discovered it now and there isn't much time left I'd highly appreciate any input:

    Item: Chanel - Black Quilted Large Cambon Tote Bag
    Serial Number: 9272456
    Listing number: 201540900156
    Seller: mhufeland
    Link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/201540900156?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_sacat%3D0%26_nkw%3D201540900156%26_rdc%3D1
    Comments:the text basically says the seller bought it 8 years ago in Tokyo and doesn't have the receipt anymore...

    I'm fluent in German but I doubt the text actually helps with authenticating. Many thanks in advance
     
  5. Could you guys take a look at this beauty and tell me what you think?

    img0.etsystatic.com/105/0/12488184/il_570xN.916649768_lac1.jpg

    I have messaged the seller and asked for more pictures + details but he hasn't answered yet (I messaged him a few days ago), so these are the only pictures I have as of now. But in the meantime, what do you guys think? Could this potentially be the real deal, or am I just wasting my time?
    Thank you so much!!!
