Vintage Louis Vuitton Saumur 30 date code?
Images of the bag.
I been interested about a vintage Louis Vuitton Saumur 30 and I've been thinking about purchasing it. The date code inside the bag confuses me though. It says "AR0921 MADE IN FRANCE" is this authentic? I thought date codes just has the letter/number combo on the tab. The bag looks real. The inside is a brown textured material ( forget what its called) and the leather has darkened and cracked a bit from age.Everything appears straight and lined up, no LV's are cut off. Any help within the next few hours would be greatly appreciated!!!
Hi Teresa ,
Thanks for raising this question: Date Codes. We now add an additional information to our 'Top 10 tips to spot a fake Louis Vuitton': 6. Vintage Louis Vuitton Authentic Guide. Date Codes
As for 'MADE IN FRANCE' underneath your letter/number date code, yes, Louis Vuitton do put this additional information sometimes.
In your case it's relevant to the country of production code: AR, which corresponds to France as well.
Sorry to come back to you later.
