Newer Louis Vuitton items have no date codes inside. Here’s the reason why!
Louis Vuitton has stopped placing date codes in bags made after March 2021. They now have a microchip system that takes the place of the date code.
Only Louis Vuitton stores can access the information on the microchips.
If the date code is not present, you can’t know when your LV was made.
Do All Louis Vuitton Have Date Codes?
Prior to March 2021, all LV items have a date code and made in stamp. If your LV item is made prior to 2021 and doesn’t have one, you’re looking in the wrong place, it is removed, or faded over time.

How Do I Know My LV Bag Is Real?
The date code is only one aspect in determining if an LV bag is real. Fake LV items have date codes too. There is so much more that goes into authenticating Louis Vuitton.
At Liyah’s Luxuries, we review multiple factors of a bag including its overall design, hardware, interior material, made in stamp and date code. Want to see how we do it? Check out this blog post on our authentication process.
