Chanel Serial Number Guide – Luxe Du Jour

Chanel Serial Number Guide

Vintage luxury pieces come with history. In attempt to limit counterfeits, Chanel first began manufacturing handbags and accessories with serial number stickers in 1986. Used as a benchmark of authenticity, Chanel handbags come with authenticity cards embossed with a serial number. This number corresponds to the year or years in which the bag was produced. Though it is an in-house system that only a few are privy to, namely employees, the serial number printed on each bag is specific to the bag itself.
