this is my first LV purchase from ebay. i got this keepall 55 used for around $610. the auction never mentioned about having a scratch on the leather and the strap (which cause one of the thread to break). i don't mind the scratched leather but i don't know if the missing thread will present a problem in the future. what do you think? when a potential buyer asked whether there were any tears or scratches, the seller sort of dodge the question. but the seller did states that there were no tears inside or outside of the bag. i have not contacted the seller yet and wanted your thoughts on it first. here is the bag. and can you confirm that it is authentic too? thanks in advance!
