Hello lovely authenticators!!

I was wondering if you would be able to kindly provide your opinion on the authenticity of this bag I just won. As the seller has yet to ship the bag I don't have many photos, but have added the photos the seller has sent me. Thank you so much!! :heart:

Item Name: Prada Nylon Messenger Bag Black
Listing number: 1428789
Seller ID: japan_monoshare
Link: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Prada-Messenger-Bag-Black-Nylon-1428789-/313700243260?mkpid=0&emsid=e11051.m43.l1123&mkcid=7&ch=osgood&euid=c391476bf2b24196a3365a0ad272cb26&bu=45220372795&osub=-1%7E1&crd=20211010224532&segname=11051&sojTags=ch%3Dch%2Cbu%3Dbu%2Cosub%3Dosub%2Ccrd%3Dcrd%2Csegname%3Dsegname%2Cchnl%3Dmkcid&nma=true&si=fvDfApLQHcYaFBIGsy0E19BDysg%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
Comments: there is a noticeable gap between the A and D on the engraving on the buckle, the buckle isn't reflective which I believe is characteristic of the newer versions of the bag, the i on the MILANO on the triangle is slightly shorter (could be irrelevant, this is my first vintage luxury bag purchase off ebay so please excuse me that was nitpicky)

Thank you so much again, and have a lovely week!

Thanks for replying! I'll be interested to hear what @Bratty1919 has to say!
I'm new at this, and I've seen you mention paying for reputable authenticators, is there somewhere I can find recommended ones vs picking a service that populates from my Google search results? Many thanks! xox
I'm sorry I can't say either way on this one.

Hello everyone,

I would really appreciate if anyone has any expertise or knowledge on whether this is an authentic bag.

this was purchased through a thrift store and looks quite old so I found it quite hard to tell. Any advice or opinions would help tremendously.

Hi :smile: What's your opinion on this bag? Sorry, I know the photos could've been better. Somehow it just doesn't quite look right to me... And do any Prada bags have one type of lining in the main compartment and then another one in a pocket?

A few inconsistencies which I do not like. Having said that, if it's fake, someone has gone to an EXTREME effort.

Bratty1919 is our expert on these older styles. Wait for her to chime in for certainty, but from what I can see, this looks to be authentic.
