  1. Hi Girls!!!!

    i just come across a very interesting fact with the reissue or may even apply to the classic flaps!

    i came across two auctions on ebay selling purple met reissues... both seem authentic however... one flap has a bottom made with two pieces of leather sewn together and one has a bottom made with a single piece of leather... i've attached photos to be clear...

    could you please share with us how the bottom of your reissue looks like? I thought it a bit strange that the bags should come into two versions of the bottom cuz I would think this would be something that's the same for all bags... in the same style...

  2. I am not sure about the smaller sizes, but for the 226 and above the bottom is two pieces.
     
  3. My 226 have two pieces, and 224 has one pice.

    HTH:okay:
     
  4. the auctions are for exactly the same bags though... both 226 i think?

    but one has two pieces and one doesn't...

    i was just looking at the yahoo HK auction sites... and there are heaps and heaps of the metallics that look very very real....

    and there seem to be a lot of the metallic reissues on ebay now... i wonder if they're all authentics.... seems those people are getting better and better at copying and making fakes nowadays... and some how i feel that by pointing out tips of authentication here... we're giving them pointers...
     
  5. My 227 has 2 pieces sewn together. In pic#2, the pieces don't look like they've been joined well. Not sure of the authenticity of the bag, but that for me might ring a few alarm bells.
     
  6. mine looks like this for size 227....but my reissue is the anniversary one!
     
  7. The 225 also has one piece. I believe the first bag is a 225.
     
  8. mine 226, 227 and 227 are all 2 pieces joined
     
  9. I have a 226. It's two pieces.
     
  10. Mine's 227... 2 pieces joined too tootoo
     
  11. :yes: all my 266's and 227 are two pieces joined together.
     
  12. mine 226 is like that, its normal i think
