HI

I got a new gst from Milan yesterday, and I started to look at it today. The hologram card matches with the bag, but the number starts 1761.. Is this really authentic? i bought from Chanel store in Milan.. I am very worried now!

Why would you be worried if it came from Chanel? Anyway 176xxxxx sounds about right for this time frame. If your concerned, post in authenticate thread.

That's batch 17, which is the latest batch at the moment. Ive been loking for batch #17 in spore but they dont have it.. So lucky u're in milan!

Oh I see.. When does it change from 16 to 17? Or is there already also 18? Does the numbers after "17" matter?
I ordered my bag via phone and that´s why I am curious. The shop in Milan is close to the Chanel factory so perhaps that is the reason why I got it?!

Have not heard about #18.. But yours is categorized as super new batch! So dont worry.. I bought a gst a week ago and i still got #162xxx.. Still loving it anyway! ;)

"the hologram card matches with the bag, but the number starts 1761.. Is this really authentic?" - I have no clue why someone would question a bag authenticity when it is from series 17? Just like US license plates, it is in alphabetical order and Chanel numbers the bags in numerically order (as simple as that).....
