Arrow Fake Tips : Louis Vuitton Tag explain .. what does AN0901 means?

Most of in fact all LV bags come with a tag like the ones below, but what does this mean? To many it is a just some serial number? Some even tell me that it should be unique. Today I will solve the mystery behind this Louis Vuitton Tag.

Country Of Manufacturer

The first 2 letter represent where the bag is made. Following is the list of country codes. So it is not true that all the bags are manufactured in France.

France: A0, A1, A2, AA, AAS (in special order), AN, AR, AS, BA, BJ, BU, CO, CT,DK (in repairs) DU (in special order), ET, FL, LW, MB, MI, NO, RA, RI, SD, SL, SN, SP, SR, TH, VI, VX

USA: DK (in repairs), FC, FH, LA, OS, SD, FL
Spain: CA, LO, LB, LM, LW
Italy: BC, BO, CE, FO, MA, RC, RE, SA, TD
Germany: LP
Switzerland: DI, FA



Date Code Explain
Depending on the year of manufacture, there are different representation when it comes to date code.

From 1990 to Dec 2006, date code is as represent as below.


Form Jan 2007 onwards, the representation of the Date code changes to as follow :


That is why , it is important to determine the authenticity of a bag by just looking at the datecode.

Hi Kelly,

I just bought a pre-owned Damier Neverfull MM from a lady & datecode is MD0042. I can't find 'MD' from the list of the country code u listed out.

Does this means this is a replica bag?

Hello there, it looks dubious to me. Go to the purse forum for help. As the goldware seems a little fake to me. and the engraving on the goldware looks a little fake.

I might be wrong. The heatstamp seemed okay. But the serial and goldware is dubious.
