Item: Silver saffiano mini backpack with navy interior
Listing Number:
Seller: hjh9032
Link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mansur-Gavr...D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
Comments: This is not the original listing. The owner re-listed for $450 and I bought it then. Couldn't find the original link, but otherwise this listing is exactly the same. It looks super legit to me, but I would like some input. Thanks in advance! :smile:

edit: won't allow me to upload several pics, so let me know if you need anymore

Sorry we missed this! I've now subscribed to this thread to be alerted when there are new postings. This bag appears authentic to me.

Here is the last listing that you purchased from (for other authenticators' reference).

Thank you for responding JSG! :smile: The bag seems real to me too. It has all the tags and everything I would need to consider it authentic. I compared it to my mini bucket for the little details, and it seems legit. I was actually worried because the interior is navy, and when they relaunched the silver saffiano line back in March at OC, the interiors were silver. But I did some research and found that the first launch of these babies included navy interiors (for the bucket, backpack, tote). I think what worried me the most was that I got this baby at a steal! The original price of $685, and I bought it at $450, which seemed too good to be true. Thanks for the reassurance! I was hesitant at first, but now I can rip the tags off and post more pics of this :smile:

A few things make me feel this isn't real. (I'm no expert) The name just looks huge, the little gold rivet that is on the zipper pull(a real one doesn't have this) and where is the made in Italy tag?.. even the listing says there isn't one. No tags, no dustbag. Yea this is probably fake.

I'm having trouble with the link. I would say that any seller who says they don't know if their item is authentic is basically telling you it's fake. I will try to take a look at this listing in particular but I'm in my phone and it's not taking me to the listing.
