AUTHENTI-HOW: Guide to CHANEL Date Codes
Posted on 03 June 2017
There's a lot to say about CHANEL when it comes to Authenticity. There are thousands of websites, with many and many suggestions, guidelines and standards. We want to try and focus on single aspects, trying to help as much as we can, when it comes to online purchases. This post wants to point out CHANEL date codes opposed to the bags release years, starting from the mid '80s. CHANEL bags released before 2005 had SEVEN digit date codes. After 2005, you will find EIGHT digit date codes. Below is a rough guide which can help you, spot-on, to give a date to the CHANEL bag you have in front:
|Date Code:||Release Year:|
|23XXXXXX||2016 to present|
|21XXXXXX||2015 to 2016|
|20XXXXXX||2014 to 2015|
|18XXXXXX||2013 to 2014|
|17XXXXXX||half 2012 to 2013|
|15XXXXXX||end of 20122 to early 2012|
|13XXXXXX||2019 to 2010|
|12XXXXXX||2008 to 2009|
|11XXXXXX||2006 to 2008|
|10XXXXXX||2005 to 2006|
|9XXXXXX||2004 to 2005|
|8XXXXXX||2003 to 2004|
|7XXXXXX||2002 to 2003|
|6XXXXXX||2000 to 2002|
|5XXXXXX||1997 to 1999|
