Hi there,
I’m in the process of getting an older, vintage Chanel flap authenticated (but also impatient lol) - it was purchased from The Real Real but it has only has six digits starting with 16XXXX & I just read somewhere that bags with six digits are fake: “If the serial number on a bag does not follow the Chanel formula or has more than 8 digits or less than 7, it is most certainly a fake.” - https://www.codogirl.com/blogs/news/chanel-authentication-guide
Would appreciate any insight!

The serial numbers tell you approximately when the bag was made. Six digits is 86-88. It doesn't mean your bag is definitely real, but it's not necessarily a signal that it's fake.

You can check out this guide to learn a little more :smile:

6 digits can be legit. Bought one similar to your situation from yoogi’s and got the green light from etinceler afterward.
