How to Spot Fake Louis Vuitton Cherry

I like to check out collectors' vintage stuff, so when some LV "authentic" cherry bags came up for sale, of course I checked them out.  Here is the first post on a bag that got me really excited, a cherry speedy bag which looked like it had good stitching. It was selling cheaper because of some canvas cracks.
Looks OK to my amateur eyes, the red dustbag came with the original cherry range.
Seller posted the crack which was why she lowered the price

This is the part I was a bit skeptical, the V sewing is not symmetrical and the stamping is not clear

But it was the last picture of the datecode that gave away the fakeness of this bag.

First of all the cherry range was launched in Spring 2005.  According to this datecode, this bag would have been manufactured in 2001.  Hence it was easy to determine this without asking for more pictures.
