I just read this from an eBay listing. A seller informed a buyer that she learned for elxury that Vuitton was phasing out the use of date codes in some newer bags, because of the counterfeiters. I have not heard this. Not only that, but that can't be true. I purchased both a Damier Speedy and a pochette accessoires in 2006 and both had the date code. Or is this another line that Vuitton employees are parroting about the date code.....?
