A serial number is embossed on the card. The same serial number can be found inside the handbag on the interior cladding or on a tab. The serial number inside the Chanel handbag is affixed by a sticker, which has been protected by a transparent foil with hologram since the beginning of 2000. Mar 15, 2020 Unfortunately, CHANEL does not offer a service that allows you to check serial numbers. You cannot check a CHANEL serial number number online on CHANEL’s website. You can’t walk into a CHANEL shop and have the serial number checked there either. In this post, we provide a beginner’s guide to conducting a CHANEL serial number check.

ADDITIONAL NOTES

PHOTO
The serifs on the number 1 start out bigger in 1986. Beginning in 1997, the serifs are smaller.
The hologram sticker will usually be placed directly onto the lining if it’s leather. On the majority of fabric lined bags, the hologram sticker will be placed on a leather tab.
Not all hologram stickers will be attached completely straight!
The numbers’ edges will always be more sharp than round.
If the hologram sticker is attached to a leather tab, the sticker will be proportionate to the leather. It will not have an excessive amount of space surrounding it.
Chanel has not changed their hologram sticker design since 1998.

Serial numbers and authenticity cards

As far as second-hand Chanel bags are concerned authenticity cards and serial number stickers do not constitute proof of authenticity. In deed they are quite easily forged. However they may help determine which year a bag has been manufactured.A missing serial sticker equally doesn’t mean the bag is a fake as many vintage bags have worn or missing serial stickers.

In 1984 Chanel started stamping a unique number for each item on an authenticity card and printed the same number on a serial sticker inside the item. Serial stickers identify the bag’s model and year. Note that bags made before 1984 do not have stickers

Chanel changes the location of the internal sticker depending on the models of bags and accessories and some can even be a little awkward to find.

it is common to find authentic second hand bags with worn or even missing serial stickers. It is simply a sticker and sooner or later with use it slowly starts to deteriorate.

As a simple guide, 6 digit codes indicate a bag made between 1984 and 1986, 7 digit codes a bag made sometime between 1986 and 2004 and 8 digit codes a bag made from 2005 onwards.

Authenticity cards were also introduced at the same time as the serial sticker. The serial number on the card should match the serial number inside the bag. It is worth noting that forging authenticity cards is relatively easy and that Chanel have never produced cards with a hologram effect. Authentic cards are thick, coated with plastic and feel a bit like a credit card.
