Contrary to popular belief, Gucci interior tags do not have QR codes on them. These are called Data Matrix codes which work like QR codes but the differences are the looks and the amount of data that can be held on these tags. The authentic example above shows a line on the left and the bottom of the data matrix code whereas, QR codes will not have these lines.

This is not a font that Gucci has ever used in their handbags.

Always check Gucci hardware and how it’s fastened to the bag, unlike this counterfeit which is not secured like it’s authentic counterpart.

Another example of a counterfeit font that was never used by Gucci.

Stamping on an authentic Gucci handbag will always be even, unlike this counterfeit interior zipper pull tab.

Symmetry in the Gucci pattern as it lays across the bag should make sense on not be hugely off centered like this counterfeit and the unmatched pattern from each side.

This counterfeit Gucci engraving is not clean nor in the standard, authentic Gucci font.

This is a very basic example of a fake Gucci exterior stamp on pleather.

An automatic no for all luxury branded handbags.

Inconsistent fonts, double stamping, and an excessive bleed trim makes this a good example of a counterfeit Gucci serial number.

The Gucci font is disctintive and while counterfeiters try and match, this is a good example of a moderate fake but the fonts in this serial number are not consistent with authentic Gucci.

Stitching and fonts should match the Gucci brand, style by style. This counterfeit interior heat stamp in a. Gucci Marmont is a good example of neither that match which an authentic Marmont.
