  4. Well, right now we are at 14XXXXXX. The last bag I purchased was August 2010 and the serial number was 139XXXXX from Fall 2010, so 138XXXX would be late Spring 2010/early Fall 2010.

  5. Anybody?? is it the "numero de serie?"
  6. hologram is a "sticker" with series of unique numbers (refer to burberryprncess post) which you will find inside of a Chanel bag.... to prove the handbag is authentic....
  7. So that mean I just buy the old one T T from sprin 2010.

    The hologram of chanel has the theory to read like the code of LV or not.
    What about the third forth fifth digit mean?
  8. It could be a pre-Fall 2010.

  9. Well I dont have one on my mine which explains why I didn't know what a hologram was! In france its called a "numero de serie'.
    But i think holograms appeared in 1986 or 85(correct me if im wrong) my bag dates from the early 80s or 70s.
  10. No, not like Louis Vuitton at all. It is not a date code. It is a serial number. Each Chanel bag has a unique serial number.
  11. See burberryprncess' post below.

  12. I see that i was right ( i think?. the first holograms were in 1986. No wonder mine doesnt have one.
  13. So, the hologram mean running number of bag, isn 't it?

    It 's running all style together such as maxi jumbo or
    running in any style?
  14. Thanks! Such useful info!!
  15. i can't seem to find mine on the classic flap. i bought it at london heathrow. can anyone help me locate it?
