Hi there.. I don't know where to start.. But i was looking at a Hermes Kelly bag ( according to the seller) she said it's: It's a Kelly Birkin Bag Black 32cm. Stamped J for yr 2006. HERMES PARIS MADE IN FRANCE embossed on front of the bag under "flap"?. Palladium hardware lock and keys ( a security ID engraved padlock with 2 ID engraved keys) Strap is stamped HERMES PARIS MADE IN FRANCE. Hermes embossed on the hardware?. Made of soft Togo leather, with chevre goat skin interior lining. 4 protective silver feets on the bottom. 2 dustbags ( 1 for the bag and 1 for the padlock?) And she's offering a matching wallet with it. Anyway, I hardly know zilch about the Hermes bag.. I'm just looking for a nice x-mas/ early bday gift for my mom.. Here are the pictures that she sent to me( click the link below). I asked her if she would be able to meet up at the Hermes store to clarify if her bag is the real deal or not.. She said: "sure". But comes to think of it... I have a feeling that Hermes don't authenticate stuff.. Or am I wrong? Should i ask more questions before dropping a bundle of $$? If so, what else should i ask? What should i really look for to know if it's a fake or not besides the # on the lock/key, stitching, leather quality.. Hope someone can help me.. please and thank you :\! Hermes bag photos: Yahoo!
