I have this purse / backpack by Dooney and Bourke and have searched endlessly and to no avail for information on authenticating it. I could really use some assistance as I believed it to be real and so I listed it for sale, but now I'm not sure. If I can't authenticate it I will end the auction. I don't want to be sold fake mechandise and I don't want to be selling it. The photos look really bad because I had to shrink them for this post. There are no tags inside, but I have read that the older bags did not have them and that some of the newer ones no longer do either. the duck is sewn on not glued.
