Help! I had a flood & my Gucci luggage was ruined

Ok, I need assistance from any Gucci experts out there.

A water pipe broke above my storage unit and my Gucci luggage - 2 matched pieces -was ruined. I need to figure out its age for the insurance guy.

I know it's authentic since I was with my Mother when she bought it new from Gucci for me. That was many years ago; however, I dont remember what year. I was in college and grad school until the mid 80s and didn't travel much so my guess is I got them sometime between the late 80s to the mid 90s.

It's the Gucci monogram GG, tan on tan, leather and coated canvas. The extra large suitcase has long double handles (unlike the ones on Ebay from the 70s and 80s which have short, stubby single handles), a big front pocket and the Gucci logo in leather. The large hanging bag, has 2 pockets in front, 1 pocket in back, pockets inside as well as detachable matching shoe bag, hangars and shoulder strap.

Does anyone know if I'm right in my guestimate re: late 80s- mid 90s ? Any other info would also be greatly appreciated.



Here are some additional photos of the large suitcase. Sorry the quality is so bad....I wasn't exactly thinking clearly as I and the insurance clean up people dealt with the mess.
