My mom and I went to the Goodwill today and I found a Gucci purse, the lady there said it had to be real since they can't sell fake purses, but she may have said that to just make a sell. I can spot a Louis Vuitton from a mile away, Gucci, I'm clueless. It was only $35 and the handle is kinda messed up.

Find the bag's authenticity number. It is usually located right behind the bag's Gucci tag.

    Compare your bag to a picture of it in a Gucci catalog. This will help you spot obvious differences in the design. Are there tassles or tags missing on your bag? Do you have one handle instead of two? Is the color of the bag different from the real one? These clues will help you decide if you are holding a fake or not.

  • 3

    Examine the stitching. Stitches should be spaced evenly; they shouldn't be loose or missing. The thread should match the bag's primary color.

  • 4

    Check the leather, which should be of high quality. The Gucci logo should be clearly engraved or heat-stamped on it instead of printed, without smudges or smears.

  • 5

    Look at the bag's hardware. It should be scratch-free and have a protective plastic cover it for you to remove. The buckle, studs and zippers should match. They shouldn't look shiny new on one side and dull on the other. The Gucci logo should be engraved right on the hardware.

    Find the serial number. Gucci puts a leather tag on the zipper seam that contains one.
