Hi, so I was trying to check the authenticity of a purse online and one of the things I was looking at was the placement of the "Louis Vuitton Paris" squares.

Now, I read this "On the Damier canvas, the boxes that say "Louis Vuitton Paris" on them will be spaced 9 squares apart both horizontal and vertical (4 dark and 5 light). Anything else is FAKE!" here: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_do_you_know_if_a_louis_vuitton_is_fake

First: It's actually 5 dark and 4 light (as seen on the LV website)
Second: The purse I'm looking at does have these markers.

However, I was wondering if the exact location on the purse frame could be different. Like, shifted upward (with that same 9 spaced frame) or downward? If it's all from one canvas, is that possible?

Thanks!

The seller hasn't sent me anything worth authenticating :sad: The pictures are too small to zoom in. So I guess this will be a general question about the LV Damier line (Ebene and Azur)...

Is there anyone who could answer this please? I technically don't have a purse to authenticate (since the pictures won't help) so I'd just really appreciate knowing. :smile:
Could the placement of the "Louis Vuitton Paris" squares, in its 9 box frame, be shifted in any direction at all? Thanks ever so much! :smile:

On the 30 it is in the exact same location on every bag. It should be 1.5 squares down from the point of the leather handle, and 2 squares to the outside of the point on the leather handle. It should be the same on both front and back.
