There is no serial number on the panthere latch. I uploaded more pictures. Please let me know if you need more.

Yes please I would like a few more pictures of the Panthere buckle - front and back, and the back of the zipper.
Thank you

Here are some more pictures of the latch and zipper pull. The latch is magnetic and on a type of hinge. The zipper pull has Cartier on both sides.

Thank you.

Thank you for the additional photos.
And thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

It is a beautiful handbag. Such vintage designer accessories are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
It is a lovely bag, however I am a bit concerned that it does not have the Cartier name/logo on the back of the Panthere clasp. This is usually the case, but occasionally you see that there is no signature on the back of the clasp. There are a few other details that concern me as to whether it is a copy of a Cartier bag, however this is difficult to determine without examining the bag in real life.
I presume that there are no original receipt, dustbag or authenticity certificate with the bag as you say you bought it second hand. Sometimes the second hand dealers offers this kind of proof.
If the handbag is genuine the second hand sales value would be 300-450 US$. If it is a copy the sales value is below 75US$

Retail prices for authentic bags may be higher and vary compared to an auction value.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
Thank you
