Hi Guys!
I just purchased this bag a week ago from my local LV. Its the neverfull mm in damier ebene with rose ballerine interior. I have since gotten pretty obsessed with the brand and have been doing a lot of research on how to spot fakes and have been using my bag as a comparison. Everything was normal until I started reading about the heat stamp or embossing of the brand and its location it was made. Mine does not look like any of the others and is actually starting to scratch off after only one week. I have included pics. Has anyone else had this issue??? Should I be worried???

I don't think it should scratch off after a week. I would ask the store to replace it. I've purchased LV's at the store with part of the stamp scratched off before so it can happen but it shouldn't be presented to you like that.

I don't have a neverfull, i have a speedy and my stamping is embossed into the leather. But if your questioning it, I would say return it before the 14 day return policy runs out, in case they don't have another neverfull with the same options you have in the store to change it out for. And I would do a full inspection of the new item and make sure your 100% satisfied with the new item.

The stamping is embossed in my Neverfull too. But mine is from 2014. I'm curious about what your date code says though? I don't think it would be fake since you bought it directly from LV. Take it back and you can compare the other Neverfulls in store too.

Hmm...I have the same bag you are speaking of... and my interior doesn't look anything like the pics you have posted.
If you purchased it from the Louis store I would return back as soon as possible

I just posted a pic of the date code above if that helps. I spoke with someone else who bought theirs directly from the LV store in February and hers is the same way just is not rubbing off.

I am absolutely going back to the store with it tomorrow. They were already closed by the time I noticed it tonight. I wanted to ask here to see if anyone else has had a similar issue and if/how it was resolved.

Have you used the bag? I bet LV will say it is normal wear like something scratched against it. I am not mpressed with LV customer services.

Yes I have carried it a few times in the week I have had it. Maybe like 3 times for about an hour. Plus I have seriously babied this thing since they day I got it. I wont let anything touch the inside that is not inside a clear travel pouch other than the pouch it comes with. Im afraid they will say its normal wear and tear too. After one week Of minimal use I think its excessive. I will definitely update you all with what they say.

I don't blame you for not being happy with that. My most recent NF, despite being mono, had the stamping actually embossed into the leather and a Delightful in DE from 2015 is also the same - embossed. Just go into the store and request an exchange explaining that you're concerned about the overall quality of the bag and how the already-fading stamp will hurt your chances of selling in the future should you choose to do so.
