RED FLAG #1: The outer full tab says LOUIS VUITTON but right underneath I don't see anything.. The "made in" stamp should be right underneath.
RED FLAG #2: The are no pictures of the bag on the inside!
I would ask the seller for additional pictures of those two areas.
As a longtime member of the forum, just a gentle request. The authenticators on this thread are true experts in what they do. It's really damaging to members trying to get expert advice on authenticity of LV items when someone attempts to be an authenticator when they don't have knowledge to be able to do do. This person could have lost out on an authentic bag because of your post, so I concur with the authenticators in asking you to be careful posting here as an authenticator without the necessary knowledge to do so. We rely very heavily on their wonderful expertise and generosity in helping us and someone might not realize you aren't one of the authenticators and base their purchase, on non-purchase on wrong information from someone that doesn't have the appropriate knowledge which isn't fair to the rest of the members and could also make a situation where people are afraid to come here for help. I've been buying LV for 30 years, but I still defer in every way to our wonderful authenticators here for their expertise. I know they've asked you not to try to authenticate with out requisite knowledge but I'm also asking as a member of the forum on behalf of the people coming here for true expert help. I know you were trying to help, and I'm not trying to downplay that, but sometimes a "little" knowledge can be worse than letting the experts do what they do graciously and wonderfully do best.
