  1. Hello ladies, I was wondering in general how to authenticate snake/croc/gator bags? Is there any easy way to tell whether the skin is a true exotic or just embossed?

    Specifically, I have my eye on this one:

    I think it's probably real because of the ridges, what do you guys think?
     
  2. Can you post some more photos?

    But first impression is that yes it's authentic croc. An older / vintage bag?
     
  3. If you own a croc bag (for comparison), just by feeling and touching the skin is really the best way to determine whether it's authentic or not.
