  4. They're all from the same seller and the details are too blurry to see.

    #1 - Ask the seller for a clear and close up picture of the hologram sticker showing the serial number and details clearly, clear picture of the CHANEL/MADE IN stamp, engraving on the zipper pull, back side of the CC closure, and full bottom view of the bag.

    #2 - Same as above and the engraving on the zipper head and engraving on the snap closure.

    #3 - Again a clear and close up picture of the hololgram sticker to see the details and numbers clearly, CHANEL/MADE IN stamp, engraving on the zipper pull, and engraving on the back side of the zipper head.
     
  5. I have a questions regarding the lambskin classic flaps.

    I was in class today, and saw a girl with a lambskin classic flap. I was going to compliment her on it, but upon further "inspection" something just didn't seem right. The size seemed off (I couldn't tell if it was a jumbo or a medium/large), and it had that seam around the edges of the flap (like the caviar leather ones do). This just didn't seem right to me. If you know what I'm talking about, are you able to come to any conclusions?
     

  6. Chanel had made a few lambskin collections in the past with this seam.
     
  7. Wow! That was super-quick! Thank you so much! You're awesome!:heart::smile:
     
  8. burberryprncess - even the classic flap?
     

  9. They were a modified version of the classic flap.
     
  10. Ohhhh, okay! I've never seen one before. Did they have the burgundy lining inside the back pocket as well?
