I just saw a pochette on eBay which looked good at first sight. From the pictures, the date code was CA1001 - CA stands for Made in Spain as far as I know and that's on the bag, too. So far, so good. The pochette was stated as "new" - "new" but from Oct. 2001??? So I asked the seller, when it was bought and he replied: 2 months ago... I decided to stay away from this bag, but have you ever bought a bag in a LV-store that was quite "old"?
