Could I have this Maggie authenticated?

seller: llanducci67
Link: https://posh.mk/3oW0q4uQ5db

eta: no plans to buy it, Im just curious lol
I'd stay far away from that one!
Ughhhh. It didn’t matter that I reported it yesterday, saw it sold this morning. Poshmark is so frustrating... :annoyed:
I just hope it wasn't a tPFer who bought it. We have some serious Orange fans here. :sad:
I often wonder whether sellers like llanducci67 would appreciate knowing that she made a mistake. I looked through her other Coach items and all are genuine (except this one: https://poshmark.ca/listing/Coach-denim-Carly-purse-6030135b9f626a87e5f16d7c) so I wonder if she's an honest seller who might do the right thing if made aware of fakes.

Unfortunately, many Poshmark sellers do NOT care!

At your convenience could you please let me know about this item? TIA.

Purchased locally.
Cosmetic Pouch in Loden?
Size is about 7 x 4.5 x 1 inches.

I remember reading this type of pouches were faked a lot. To me looks good but I want to be sure

Could you kindly check this Ebay listing? It doesn't look right to me and I'd like to report it if it's fake. Thanks so much for your time and expertise! :hugs:

Listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-CO...438788?hash=item23ee464844:g:sDwAAOSwSUBgHudt

Seller: aggieboutique

Listing number: 154321438788
I see at least one possible problem but without a photo of the creed stamp and serial number it shouldn't be reported. But there's NO way anyone should risk buying it either.

I believe there is enough evidence it can be reported. All the hardware is wrong. There shouldn't be a leather strip across the inside of the flap. The inside zipper pull looks wrong and the inside zipper doesn't go end to end.

Thanks, Whateve. There aren't any pics of the inside of that style in my files, so the wonky turnlock and the metal "keeper" by the strap buckle were the only things I was sure were wrong, and straps and turnlocks can be replaced. I'm glad you found better evidence.

You're welcome. The top of the back pocket should also be curved.

I can't think of any styles that have a strip of leather across the inside of the flap like that. Either the flap is completely lined or it isn't reinforced at all.
