AUTHENTI-HOW: Guide to CHANEL Date Codes

Posted on 03 June 2017


CHANEL IDENTIFICATION BROWN CHOCOLATE BAR WOOL MADEMOISELLE FLAP BAG

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
22XXXXXX 2016
21XXXXXX 2015 to 2016
20XXXXXX 2014 to 2015
19XXXXXX 2014
18XXXXXX 2013 to 2014
17XXXXXX half 2012 to 2013
16XXXXXX 2012
15XXXXXX end of 20122 to early 2012
14XXXXXX 2011
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
4XXXXXX 1996 to 1997
