I recently purchased a vintage Hermes Birkin 35 bag and I m doubting its authenticity.The leather is of the finest quality and looks very old and worn but the markings are very strange and I ve never seen anything like that on a Birkin.The year stamp and craftman s stamp are A 1S so the bag is supposed to be one of the first Birkin bags ever made,so I was told too.I was also told that the bag belonged to Kathy Kirby and that the paint on the outside layer of the bag was taken off from the leather and waxed afterwards.The inside of the bag is brown and the outside is mustard and indeed it looks like one layer of colour that was darker was taken off.On the bottom feed there is an H engraved(?!)I ve read on a forum that Hermes changed the stamps and markings since they started making Birkins but I m not sure that information is correct either.
If anyone has any knowledge of vintage Birkin bags please give me some advice,I would grately appreciate it.Thank you for reading.
