Just purchased a Sac Plat tote on ebay

I just purchased a pre-owned LV Sac Plat tote on ebay. The seller guaranteed its authenticity and I made a deal with her that if I get it checked out and it's authenticity is questionable, I will be able to send it back to her.

It looks pretty old. date code is MI0030.
Now I noticed from the picture that there aren't any "media pockets" but i know that none of my other vintage LV bags have those (obviously). I can't seem to find any information on when the interior pockets were introduced.

Basically, if there's anything that you know about the Sac Plat, i'd appreciate it.

Thanks!

once i receive it, i could upload photos.

Dear Elaina,

It's pretty hard to give any information without any pictures, If you could send any pictures, at least those ones you've seen on e-bay for now, it will be much easier to advice.

What I can say so far is regarding the date code you've sent us (MI0030), so LV started using this type of the code only from late 1980s, recording to that it shouldn't look too old and it should have had the inner pockets, although there are always exceptions with LV.

Anyway send us as many pictures as you can and we'll sort it out for you.

If you will need a proof for your seller (or future buyer) whether your bag is authentic or not, we will be happy to publish the full analysis on our web site so that you can have a reference.

Please keep us posted.

Kind regards, and best wishes,

I received this same bag today and I don't see any codes numbers or LV anywhere inside of tote. Seems to be well made and stitched, smaller inside zip.
I purchased on Ebay...Code number on listing is M51140.....This being my 1st and it being vintage, I don't know what to look for.
Trying to contact seller....

Thanks
