Orange or brown handles on Speedy

Jan 25, 2006
I've heard that this is a dead give away of a fake :confused1: , but then I see some people with this and they swear there bag is real :confused1: My speedy has light colored handles they have gotten a little darker over time but not dark orange or brown :?:
hmm... i know some long time LV owners that used leather oil on their vachetta (im talking about LV collectors eversince the early 80's) perhaps those things turn the leather into something like that...
