Hi can anyone help me try to id if my chanel bag is authentic or a fake. I purchased it from a charity shop which made me think it was a fake, but on closer inspection it looks and feels like a very expensive and quality bag so may be the real thing? Its made of good quality leather, it has the quilted stitching which is very even and neat, the logo chanel is engraved (not stamped) on the straps a twice on each strap. There is a gold logo tag hanging from the bag, also a square plain leather tag which is on a short dog tooth tag? The bag is lined with a dark red/burgancy lining which feels like a heavy synthetic material - not being leather lined is one of my doubts. There is a number stamped on the fastener (which is a magnetic press stud type fastener under the flap) it is - ok.0973628 okpta1519426 - could that be a serial number? I have tried to attach some photos but they are too large and cannot be accepted, if anyone thinks they can help I can email them to you, just let me know your email address ... This is a fab site!!!! have only just discovered it today.
