Is this Chanel Bag real?

    This is a similar one on eBay without caviar leather:

    ....but it has a different inside, bottom and general shape. I don't know which is real, or if it's possible they are both real and just made differently....

    HELP before this auction ends!

  2. Please post in our Chanel section of the site, there are lots of experts there who can help you.

    Here's a link:

  3. In my humble opinion the red one looks authentic and the black one looks fake. The reason for that is the inside on the black bag looks a bit off. And i have a bag with identical inside like the red bag.

  4. I was thinking the same thing about the inside of the bag...too shiny or something, and the metal tag that says chanel made in france seemed odd to me....
  5. When I worked at Saks as an LV Specialist, I also had the opportunity to learn a lot about CHANEL authenticity (since we also sold it in the same dept.), so the CHANEL specialist taught me a lot about fake and real with CHANEL handbags.

    Unfortunately, this one (the black one) does not look real to me. In fact, it's a bad fake to boot. It's the Caviar Leather which doesn't look as grainy as the real thing. The hardware (the double C's), even though the seller didn't do a close-up of this—looks horrible. It looks like the faux gold plate has rubbed off. That's another thing about CHANEL, even though their hardware is NOT real gold, they dip it several times to ensure that the gold overlay does not wear off. This looks really bad.

    I wouldn't purchase a CHANEL handbag on eBay UNLESS it came with the authenticity card, the drawstring bag and the CHANEL box. That's my honest opinion.

    The seller isn't even showing a close-up of the so-called serial number, which really scares me. All CHANEL serial numbers that are inside each bag have a hologram on it. From what I can tell, I don't see that.

    I hope this helps.
