Louis Vuitton are one of the most desirable and respected fashion designers in the world. Their products, such as the Louis Vuitton Batignolles Vertical and Horizontal handbags retail for over $750 and are in very high demand throughout the world, with stock sometimes difficult to find.

Official Louis Vuitton retail outlets are without doubt the best places to buy. You are guaranteed a brand new and genuine Louis Vuitton handbag, with the after sales back up to match the exemplary pre-sales service you can expect to receive from one of retail’s most respected brands.

With such expensive consumer items, there is the opportunity for cheap imitations to make their way into the market and with a significantly lower price the temptation is for consumers to be led away from the official retail outlets. These replica or fake Louis Vuitton bags can be difficult to spot in isolation and a potential buyer needs to know how to identify a genuine product before making a purchase.

If you want to check that your LV Batignolles handbag is a genuine LV product and not a fake you need to look for a date code that is printed on a leather tab inside the zipped pocket of the bag. This will be either a two letter and four number code or a one letter and five number format that shows the country, month and year of manufacture.

Country of manufacture

The first two digits indicate the country of production. For France the digits will be either A0, A1, A2, AA, AN, AR, AS, BA, BJ, CT, DU, ET, FL, MB, MI, NO, RA, RI, SD, SL, SN, SP, SR, TH or VI. For the USA the digits will read either FC, FH, LA, OS or SD. For Spain you need to look for CA, LO, LB, LM or LW. Germany is indicated by the code LP whilst if your LV handbag was manufactured in Italy the code would be either CE or SA.

Month and year of manufacture

The last four numbers refer to the month and year of production. The first three indicate the week whilst the last digit shows the year. For example a Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Batignolles Vertical with a date code of SP0329 would have been manufactured in France during the 32nd week of 2009.

We hope this article has given you the free advice you need in order to check your potential LV bag purchase.
