Please, give me info on this bag from 1979 gift have not seen any of this kind with shoulder strap.

Thanks,
Robert from Tulsa

VFC: Hi Robert,

Though your bag looks luxurious and in a very good condition considering the fact that it's 1979, there are few bits that worry me:

1. LV initials are not symmetrical(the LVs should be situated on the equals distance from the handles and from each edge of the bag);

2. The rivets cover the stitches (they should be either above or below)

3. Now the shoulder strap, Yes, you are right, unfortunately it doesn't look Louis Vuitton. Firstly the lock.
In Louis Vuitton bags they usually use the same colour metal for all the details: rivets, locks, zipper locks, etc. What we see here is silver colour of metal of the locks and gold colour of metal of the rivets and zipper locks.

4. And then the shoulder strip itself was never produced in this colour: canvas on one side, beige on the other.

5. There have never been brown suede linings mash even in the vintage pieces.

6. And finally the zipper strap's rivet is not in the right position. Have a look it should sit beautifully in the senator of the leather strap, but it doesn't.

I'm very sorry to give you bad news, but this bag looks like an expensive counterfeit, it is not an authentic Louis Vuitton bag.

The Bag In Question "Fake"
by: Anonymous

Hi, I recently purchased some bags at an estate sale that included some very nice purses etc. There were five Louis Vuitton Bags! I have one like the one pictured. The family that owned the bags were long time upper echelon attorneys that would have purchased them years ago. There were five bags and at first I thought they were all fake but now I realize that they are not. They are just old. All made in France. I cannot imagine this family purchasing anything fake! They were amongst several other high end purses...Gucci etc. I have noticed that some of the L Vs are symmetrical on the bag! However, this one is not. It is almost identical to the bag in the picture. Most likely 30 years old or more. I find this all interesting.

I think you could be mistaken regarding this bag.I have the exact same bag. Purchased over 30 yrs ago by a boyfriend at. A high end store In Boston. People tell me it doesnt look real as well. But unless they were selling fakes in 1980. Id take it to Lv. And find out myself, although i dont have the shoulder strap anymore so i dont remember what it looked liked.
My hardware is all tarnished. But this is the first bag like mine i have ever seen out there. I have a hrad time believing this bag is a fake. If so its a good one, lasting all these years and o still use mine.
