Hi,
I am pretty sure this is authentic, but I just wanted to make sure before I bid:

Couldn't authenticate from those pics Gloria. Sorry.
You need to ask for pics of the rivets, bales, close up of the Bal tag inside (both front and back) and if it comes with any paper tags with the date code on too that would be helpful to give it a year of release and a colour as it looks pretty faded from those pics.... It's maybe Anthra but it looks washed out by the flash....

Hi traceyv, I'm so sorry but this is not authentic. I could tell right away just looking at it first glance. After 100s of hours of Bal research, one has an eye for it, KWIM? The "leather" doesn't have the look of chevre leather which is what Bal used during their production of Metallic Bronze (2005). I'm assuming this is supposed to be Metallic Bronze. The style of this bag is a First so the serial number should be 103208 not 103102. The other details are: the rivets are not notched, the bales are not dipped, the metal tag is not centered on the leather tag, and the studs don't look like they have the right dimensions.

Sorry for the bad news. Since you purchased it at a thrift store hopefully you didn't pay too much.

Hi, I'm new to posting on this site but have been lurking for awhile. Today I saw a Dior handbag at a consignment shop's winter clearance event. I'm not familiar with Dior handbags and was hoping you could let me know if the bag is definitely fake. I realize that my cell phone pics aren't the clearest but I'd like to get an idea of whether there are any glaring problems evident in these photos. If there aren't, then I'll make the trek back to the store with my camera and take clearer, more detailed photos to post here for further authentification. It's just that when I was visiting today, I didn't anticipate needing a camera at all! And it's freezing out there with a snowstorm so I don't want to walk in the cold if these photos can show obvious fakeness.
