Shape - From: http://www.handcraftbags.com/Hermes_Learning/13.html

The authentic bag’s shape is crisp and pronounced, whereas the fake bag’s shape shows bulges where you would expect a straight line.

Stamp & Contour

The stamp on the authentic bag is clean and uniform, but the stamp on the fake bag looks spotty and irregular. Also, the authentic bag has a slight indented contour above the seam, which is missing from the fake bag.
