When I come across an auction that is obviously for a fake LV, I just shake my head and move on, but sometimes I see one where I just don't understand how an expensive bag could end up in such poor condition. I've seen a couple of bucket bags, only a few years old, with the linings replaced. Why would that be? Here is one that says the leather has not even gotten its patina yet though the lining is in horrible condition. What would cause this? The date code looks like maybe 98, but how could it not have developed a patina in nearly 10 years. http://cgi.ebay.com/Auth-Used-Louis-Vuitton-LV-Large-Bucket-Purse-Tote-Bag_W0QQitemZ150131694825QQihZ005QQcategoryZ63852QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem These auctions leave me scratching my head. Just curious if any of you find these too? Any odd issues on other auctions that send up red flags in your head?
