How does Balenciaga bags’ Serial Number work? All I can say is you cannot use serial number to judge if a Balenciaga bag is real or fake any more. You can use serial number to spot a normal fake but there are many super fake out there with the correct serial number!
How to spot a fake Balenciaga?
1, the rivets – I’ve never seen any fake Balenciaga with the right cut on rivets. Balenciaga bags that were produced before 2004 don’t have rivets though.
2, the font (not the serial number) on the tag. The secret is the “d” in “made in Italy” is taller in a real bag than that in a fake bag.
3, the way Balenciaga logo is engraved on leather.
Here are some side-by-side photos of a very good fake I got from eBay and a real I bought from Balenciaga. You can see the difference. Can you spot the fake?
