How Can You Tell If a Louis Vuitton Wallet Is Real?
For every high-end product it's important to understand whether it's authentic or counterfeit, especially if you're buying it pre-owned. Purchasing a luxury wallet that already belonged to someone can save lots of money, when you want to have a quality product but can't afford a brand-new item. Before making a deal with a seller make sure the wallet is actually worth the money asked for it. Here are some tips how to do it:
- Examine the canvas and the embossing. If you have an authentic LV item to compare it with, it would make checking easier for you. Fakes can be really good but they won't be the same as the original print. All elements should be of the same size with clear edges.
- Check the leather by touching both inside and outside. Counterfeit products are made from poor quality materials, they are usually firm. Authentic LV is pleasant to touch, the skin is soft.
- Look at the zipper. The Louis Vuitton hardware can last for ages, even if you use the wallet every day. Do you see plenty of scratches? Is the golden covering fading? That might be a fake!
- The heat stamp inside tthe wallet would reveal a counterfeit item. If possible, compare the two LV heat stamps and you will see the difference immediately.
- Be careful when you check the date code. Although, it is possible to check authenticity using an LV date code checker, the wallet might still be counterfeit even if the checker says that it is original. Fakes are getting better every year, and some very good fakes carry actual date codes. If you want to know more about LV date codes, read our complete guide to Louis Vuitton date codes with 500 photo examples and our article on new Louis Vuitton date codes 2019-2020.
Do All Louis Vuitton Wallets Have a Date Code?
As you know, the Louis Viutton fashion house put a special code on their bags that show the year and the month of it production. They have the same policy for wallets. Finding the date code on the soft skin of a tiny wallet can be tricky: it might hide in pockets for coins or inside a card slot, some of them are found under zippers. Examine the wallet carefully before claiming there's no code on it: use a flashlight or different kinds of lightning. If the date code is missing, there might be 3 reasons for that: the item is too old (there were no codes before 1980s), it has rubbed off or the item is fake.
We do recommend to order professional authentication when it comes to wallets. This simple step will save you hundreds of dollars! If you want to see a comparison between real and fake Zippy wallets in detail, be sure to watch this video.
