I am new to the purse forum. I hope you can help to answer some of my questions regarding the discontinued LV product. I am interested in purchasing louis vuitton spring street for quite sometimes. It is now discontinued. I found one on ebay. I am almost sure that it is authentic except few points. It does not have heat stamp on the clochette, the bottom and side of the bag are plain leather and it seems to have a trace of glue where the date code is. This is the silver one, from date code (VI 1001), it was made in late 2001. Does anyone know whether the spring street has the heat stamp on clochette and whether the side and bottom should be plain?
