Louis Vuitton Sac Plat Tote: Is this real or fake?
isn't this shiny....had flash on
Could you please give me your opinion on this LV bag? Not looking to sell or anything but would be curious if it is real and if so what it might be worth. Found it in an older lady's garage. It doesn't have a date code that I hear people talking about. Does that mean it is fake? Or could it have been made before they started doing the date code? I have seen the pic on the internet and it is a LV Monogram Sac Plat Tote.
Thank you for popping in to VFC.
1. Judging on the label only I can say that it's a fake :(
Please see this post for more details: Vintage LV Briefcase.
2. The second sign is the inside of bag. There should be an Interior zip pocket and a cell phone pocket instead of the zipper which we see on 'inside of bag' picture.
3. And thirdly, on your 'isn't this shiny' picture you can see clearly that the bag has a zipper, whether authentic Sac Plat Tote bags don't have:

4. Here are the brief description and dimensions of the authentic Sac Plat Tote bags:
Golden brass hardware
Interior open patch and cell phone pockets
Hand-held; carried with two rolled leather handles
Spacious, open compartment
14.5"L x 15"H x 3.5"W

'Well darn! LOL! I had hoped that I had one of those rare "picker moments" and found something really valuable! Oh well, even if it is a fake, it is a great bag and I plan on keeping it and useing it! Thanks so much for your insight! It was very helpful!'
I was happy to help.
No, unfortunately, there are much more often counterfeits rather than "picker moments".
I'm glad you enjoy your bag anyway.
Thanks for stopping by,
