Hello TPF'ers!!! So... I had purchased a "mint condition" Galliera PM in DA but sadly she came to me not as described and I had to return her She had a hole puncture deep into the canvas as well as very dirty interior that was omitted from the listing. Anyways, I was super sad about that and figured if I was going to get a Galliera PM DA that is not mint condition then I'd prefer one broken in with a much nicer price tag. So my Dilemma is -- I found TWO and have NO IDEA which one is better/worse for the price. So I bought BOTH! I am NOT going to keep both but I really needed more time to decide. Both have not been shipped yet. One of them is from a Japanese seller that has a 14 day return policy but I'd like to decide prior to shipping so that both the seller and I won't lose the money in shipping/return shipping. The other one is from Brandoff whom offered to issue me a refund/cancel the transaction should I change my mind about the bag prior to shipping. I would like to choose one and have only one sent to me and get a refund/cancel transaction on the other! By the way both of the sellers know this and are okay with this. First Galliera PM DA: http://www.ebay.com/itm/181347162124?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2648 Please Scroll down the body of the listing for more pictures of its condition... Price: $750.00 Made in France from 2010 Pros: - $49.00 Less. - The shape/form of the bag looks better in general. Cons: - Comes with nothing - only the bag. - More wear and patina to the vachetta leather. - More dirty tint to the canvas overall. -Worn Corners. - Some ink mark on the inside lining. - More Dirt/Black Marks around the vachetta leather trim. - Being that it is from 2010 - the Brass rings already have the plastic insert inside so I won't be able to bring it into LV to replace them with shiny new rings. - What bothers me the most about this bag is I can see a dark dirty stain in the back of the bag -- right smack in the middle of the back. I can see how the DA canvas on the middle part of the back of the bag is a bit more dirty and has a yellow/darker tint. Dirty part in the middle of the back with natural light: With Flash: Second Galliera PM DA from Brandoff: http://www.ebay.com/itm/400673521684?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2648 Price: $799.00 ($49.00 more than the other one) Made in France from 2008 Pros: - Comes with the Louis Vuitton Dust Bag. - Being that it is from 2008 - I can bring this bag into LV and get the brass rings replace to the new shiny ones with the plastic insert. - Looks better overall -- DA Canvas looks whiter/cleaner. - Less dirty black marks around the vachetta leather trim. Cons: - Seller states "Deformation" in the listing and I can sort of see it. Do you think this "deformation" will get better in time? Would it look better if I have my things inside of the bag? Maybe it looks like that only because the bag is just stuffed with papers. - May have a musty odor but that generally does not bother me as much. - There is a black mark around the metal snap closure -- not sure if that is tarnishing from the metal of the snap closure onto the vachetta leather or just a shadow. - There is also a distinctive black stain on the vachetta leather -- not sure what it could be (ink?) It does not look as bad when looking at the full view of the bag. I am still waiting on the seller to send me pictures of the metal plate to see how scratched it is and the 4 corners of the bag to see its full condition. But base on everything so far.... which bag would you purchase?? Which is a better deal as far as price for condition? Which looks better and "newer"? Please advise as I am so torn between the two! Thank you very much for your help!!
