This looks fake to me. The canvas is too thin, there's not even the beginnings of a pantina and the workmanship looks like made in China.

Thank you Miz! And I also noticed the monogram, on the Keepall 50 it's supposed to be 6 "LV's" in a row, not 7....
But what do you think of the other one?? (http://cgi.ebay.com/AUTH-LOUIS-VUITT...d=p3911.c0.m14 )

What bothers me about this one is the lock/key set which looks older than the bag. Ask the seller to unstuff the bag and take a photo so we can gauge the thickness of the canvas. Need a photo taken straight on of the bag unstuffed, not the overhead shot which only shows the interior. According to the date code, the bag is from 1996, however, it looks newer than that. Bags can be artificially pantinaed, so can't go by that, and the fakes can look exactly like the authentic, with a few differences: the thickness of the canvas (fakes are thinner) and the hardware. See if you can get more photos of the bag unstuffed and a close up of the lock; I'd like to see the number on the lock, and post.

It takes a trained eye to know a real Chanel.

No. 1 - authentic.

No. 2 - this is not a good investment; this bag has been destroyed so why would you want it? I'd need to see the interior hologram sticker to know if it's authentic. My advice is to pass on this because it's not worth the $250 being asked. It looks like something "ate" the corner, like a dog. Not worth the money.

I am 99% sure this is a fake. I've never seen this type of color on a LV, but then again what do I know? Can you pros tell me if LV ever even made bags this color?

Looks fake to me too, but post in the LV thread and see what they have to say.

No, need to see more photos. Sellers who only two you 2 photos in my opinion, don't really want to sell the item. We'd need to see the interior and the date code, and other photos of the outside.

^That's what I would say too. An authentic seller would want to provides loads more photos.
