My item does not have a date code

Here's what might be the explanation:
1) Your item is vintage and was manufactured before 1980
2) The code was stamped into lining and worn off. It is very typical for alcantra lining. Looks at the examples below - it's barely visible.
3) Your handbag is manufactured after March 2021. These have microchips and no date codes.
4) On extremely rare occasions, you can find an authentic Louis Vuitton bag without a date code and manufactured between 1980-2021. It can be a production defect or appear as a result of handbag repair (note that it's not a standard process, it basically means that something went wrong).

Where can I find my Louis Vuitton bag's date code?

Louis Vuitton's date codes are always located on different parts of a bag. The most typical location, not exclusive though, can be inside a pocket (next to the sewing line). The date code can be stamped on a leather tag inside, to the lining or to the vachetta (white leather) parts.
Keep in mind that a date code on an item does not guarantee that its authenticity since many counterfeit items also have legit date codes. A legit and properly stamped date code is just one of many parameters that are checked to guarantee the authenticity of a Louis Vuitton handbag. Learn more about our authentication process here.
