*****For bags made in 2011 or after, we can no longer provide email authentication without a serial number/hologram sticker intact.******

*****For classic flaps and reissue flaps from the 15 million series (15xxxxxx)and beyond, we can no longer authenticate them online due to the widespread circulation of Super Fakes in the secondary market.  Super Fakes are counterfeit bags that are almost perfected by the counterfeiters and are very difficult or almost impossible to authenticate online based on pictures alone.  Unless you have the proper packaging from Chanel (magnetic hinge box, white dust bag, certificate of authenticity stamped by Chanel with the serial number written on it, hologram sticker/serial number intact inside the bag), it is impossible to authenticate it online.  

In order to authenticate an item, we will need clear and detailed pictures.  It is imperative that you first get the right pictures needed to properly authenticate CHANEL items.  Be sure to size down each picture so that it does not exceed 1000 X 800.  Here is a list of required pictures:
