Ellipse bag. Fake or Authentic?
This is a bag that was handed to me by a family member some time ago. It's a nicely made bag, from what I can see. It's heavy and seems to be sturdy, smells of leather. I am NOT a LV collector, but, just doing my own research, I believe this to be a pretty decent fake. Before I send it to Goodwill, I want to get. some more expert opinions
Some of the damning evidence:
-too many stitches
-no date code
-patterns don't line up perfectly
-a little leather tag inside that I can't seem to find on other online pictures
-crappy (or just old?) lock that I broke trying to open
-a key that I could only find one example of anywhere online
-cheap and/or colored metal on the key ring
Thanks in advance!
