How do I authenticate a Louis Vuitton wallet?

1 Answer
To authenticate a Louis Vuitton wallet made between 1982 and March 2021, look for the date code, usually stamped directly onto the wallet above a seam. The first two characters of the code refer to the manufacturing location and are either two letters or a letter and a number. Next, you should find four numbers. The first and third tell you the month of the manufacturing date, while the second and fourth numbers indicate the manufacturing numerical date. For example, March 20 would appear as "0230." Newer wallets have microchips for authenticating. A customer service representative at a Louis Vuitton retail store can scan the microchip for you to determine authenticity.
