Vintage Louis Vuitton?  
I just bought this from a girl whom supposedly found it in a vintage shop in LA. She was a reputable seller, with authentic Chanel items on her listings, that had reciepts and proofs of purchase etc. I had asked before buying how she knew if this LV was authentic, and she had taken it to Holt Renfrew/LV counter and they confirmed it.

I'm not too sure yet, because there are no serial numbers or markings of any kind, and I will be taking it to Holt to get it looked at, but for now I thought I'd post pictures here to get some opinions. I've already gone to the Purse Forum, but I'd like a variety of answers and info. Thanks!

Item name I believe is the Monogram Porte Tresor International Wallet, but my version is missing the 3 credit card slots. And the snap closure, on the inside says SWIP 2.5 SHB (I think).

Thanks! If it is real, how do I go about cleaning it?

as for the "heat" stamp, it matches perfectly to my authentic pochette or whatever it's called, the little pouch with the key ring. so i'm not sure if that's the part that's wrong, if its fake. thanks for the help though!

my 2 cents...
this model isn't a PTI, it's called a TRESOR. and from what I can tell it's real but very old. but what do I know...... I just worked at a 2nd hand lv shop for 7 months ;) there is definitely a date code but on the older models it's harder to find :) usually inner pockets near the stitching lining.. always 2 capital letters (factory) followed by 4 numbers (date/month & year of production)
