I know that the patina on LV's can be of varying shades/colors. I would LOVE to see the different "phases" that a LV patina goes through. Does anyone have a large enough collection to do display the changes? If not that is ok too! Maybe we can all post what stage our current LV is in and compile the "life" of the patina. I'll go first. I sold my petite noe a couple of months ago. The patina was in the "honey" phase.
