  1. I have a Black Crocodile 28cm Kelly which according to using the chart for blindstamps on the Purse Forum says that it is from 1953. When I had it cleaned in New York Pierre said he thought it was from the early 1960s but he wasn't sure until he examined it in far more detail and then I never received a set year when I received it back. So my question is did Hermes even make Kelly bags in 1953? If anyone knows for sure I'd be most appreciative thanks.
  2. Can you post some pics? Would love to see the inside zipper (IS there a zipper?) and any blind stamps on the inside front strap.
  3. Short answer, yes, Hermes made Kelly bags in 1953.
    Definitely post pics!
