The date code and country code are important tools for detecting phony Louis Vuitton. Often times the counterfeiters will have these details wrong,
but if the buyer is unaware of the correct sequences, then it is makes little difference. Generally, the top quality fakes will have the sequences correct.
But you will be surprised at how many do not. And a simple check of the date code can identify the counterfeit. What is also important to consider
(along with the correct [model country] mapping) is the quality of the date code impression within the Louis Vuitton material. Often times it will not
be the sequence that will identify the item as a fake, but it will be the overall look of the stamp itself. The authentic stamps should be crisp and clean
impressions with a high level of detail. A blurry looking stamp that looks as if it was a quick rushed job, one that lacks the overall quality and level of
detail of Louis Vuitton, should always be considered a warning flag.
