Hi guys,
I'm planning to get a used Galliera. I never bought pre-loved before, but this one is sold out nationwide, and I really like it. But I'm so paranoid about getting a fake bag.
So, I looked at soooo many Gallieras on the trusted resell websites, and yet I can't pull the plug. Even after it's authenticated here, I feel like I need another confirmation of the bag being authentic.
So, do you know if I can check with the store (if i have a copy of the receipt) and have them confirm that a bag with a specific date code is the one on the receipt?
I guess the question is, do LV stores have a date code for each transaction in their system? I know they don't put date code on my receipt.

Thanks in a advance!

No date codes aren't individual to each individual bag, there's a bunch of bags with the same date code as they were made at the same time :smile:

And the authentications on here are actually really good and reliable! You should just take their word :smile:

Nope the code is not unique and they won't give you any info on someone else's purchase. Also the sales associates aren't trained to detect fakes. If you want a second opinion outside of TPF there are several others you can pay to authenticate.
