  1. Hello everyone,

    I just recently purchased my first Birkin and noticed that after the year stamp on the strap, there is an extra stamp that looks like an upside down horse shoe. I'm not sure if this is normal and what it means. Can someone enlighten this newbie. TIA :smile:

    I have attached a pix of the stamp for reference.

  4. Oh congrats!!!! I love geranium!!!!! Such a warm, happy red! It says "Hug me!" Great first birkin!!
     
  5. What a beautiful first Birkin, love it! Congratulations!
    Don't worry about the stamp, it's completely normal :yes:.
     
  6. Thank you Purselover :smile: I really love this color red.
     
  7. Congrats! The color is gorgy!!
     
  8. Do you know what it means? Just curious. thanks for the compliment :smile:

     
  9. It is beautiful! I would love to know what it means too!
     
  10. Hi, don't worry, it is completely normal. Apart from the year stamp (P in a square for 2012), the craftsman will also stamp the strap with his personal symbol and the symbol of the workshop in which it was made.
     
  11. Thank you for the information.
     
  12. It has nothing to do with a personal symbol; the marks are related to the different ateliers and really have no meaning to anyone but Hermes.
     
  13. I just checked the strap on my new 35 Geranium Kelly and I have the same stamp! :smile:
     
  14. Congrats on your new Kelly. I'm sure she looks beautiful. I really love this red. Does yours have the pink stitches? My Birkin has the pink stitch on it, it is not as contrasting but when you have it under the sun, you can tell the difference. I'm not sure if this is normal as this is my first but I really like it though, i thought it was interesting.
     
  15. I don't think my Kelly has pink stitching. It's the same color as the bag. I have a Rouge Vif HAC that has pink stitching. Love!
