New Louis Vuitton Date Codes 2019-2020

All Louis Vuitton fans know that a date code is the most important feature to tell if a bag you are about to purchase is real or fake. 

Louis Vuitton Date Code is a combination of numbers and characters that allows you to identify where and when a particular Louis Vuitton item was made. Most date codes are a combination of letters and numbers. The letters indicated the country in which the item was made while the numbers indicate the month/year of production.

But the tricky thing with Louis Vuitton date codes is that you need to keep track of all the changes that they often undergo. New factories open every year, others close or get transferred, so some codes become obsolete, and others appear. 

Here is the list of all the new Louis Vuitton Date Codes that appeared in 2019-2020 for you not to get lost!

How To Verify That Louis Vuitton Is Authentic Using Date Codes

A lot of people believe that if a date code is legit, the item is authentic. I am about to disappoint you - it's not true. Counterfeiters learned to copy the date code logic so a date code on a fake can be fully legit. So be aware while using the online date code checker as it can show that your item is authentic but, in fact, it is not. Here are some pictures of the date codes from fake Louis Vuitton bags that we checked in 3 online date code checkers, and they all consider them authentic. 

And here are two more fake date codes that you can check yourself. 

Please, remember that an online date checker can never replace professional authentication. A valid and properly stamped Louis Vuitton date code is just one step in the authentication of a Louis Vuitton handbag.

To be 100% sure that your item is not fake, order online professional authentication for just $10 dollars at Bagaholic!
