Yep, the Lumieres de Paris was me. :amuse: I think we determined it was an authentic example of the blue cw but that the seller somehow really threw off the color balance of the photos. I decided not to pursue, and someone did eventually buy it; I hope it was a tPFer!

I do appreciate your wanting to give sellers the benefit of the doubt for as long as possible. Thank goodness for all the resources that we do have to try to do our due diligence before purchasing.
The lumieres was an excellent example, with enough HOURS of work, you could come to a resolution
BUT seriously, the seller should be doing the heavy lifting ...

Reminder :cutesy:
This thread is to post fake/counterfeit Hermes so that we can report to eBay, and most importantly, to warn potential buyers about! Please stay ON TOPIC.
Please make 100% anything you post for sure counterfeit so as not to wrongly accuse sellers, if you're not certain then please don't contribute.

And independent verification bonus ...
i did check my FaS in the green cw, blue tiger stripes - I too have white dots
remember the Turandot that some marks missing in the middle ... or Parures de Sam also a missing bit on the skirt...
it does help to check all the CWs, well, two of FaS are dotted


ok I love green and blue tiger ... no one else has to ...
I have the black border FaS one & mine too has dots, but in this cw they are a gold/ochre/pale yellow type colour.

I had no idea they copied picotin! :Push:
I am no bag expert but I have seen $50-$100 versions of every style on Chinese sites - the few that I can ID - again not a bag person - Halzan, plume, bolide, all Bs, Ks - any size and leather, jypsiere, all the picotins, evelyne, Constance, I recognize more styles but dont know the names

I go there to do due diligence on the latest scarf fakes
