Just received 21p bag (bought direct from Chanel Saks)and noticed these black drops on the brushed metal strap right out of the gate. I haven’t even unwrapped the rest of the strap to see if there’s any more. Does anybody know what this is and can it be removed? This is the last bag available.

That looks like its Acrylic Leather Paint. It’s what they use to paint the ends/edges of leather to give it that finished look, mostly like they didnt let it properly dry so it went on the chain. Kinda makes me wonder if it was refurbished/sent to Chanel so they can send it back to the boutique to sell it. You might be able to use a needle to remove them.
Or, it could be that the chain is tarnishing, but thats my last guess because i see the black color is more bubbly/rounded like its just on top of the chain surface.

Thanks this is what I was thinking. I’m so disappointed. The production of this bag had already been pushed back for spring and only a few stores in the US got it.

I didn’t purchase anything last year, but went a little crazy in Feb! My SA came across a 20A rainbow reissue and I couldn’t resist :heart:. Added the zippy and glasses case (yellow interior/rainbow hw) because they were both too cute to pass up!

Agree this looks like paint used to pain the edging...I rarely say exchange...I'd exchange this.

That’s the last one available? Yikes that’s a tough position to be in if the bag can’t be exchanged. How much do you love it? Would you be fine just returning it? Because that condition is unacceptable. Up to you if you want to just keep it and then maybe ask Chanel if they can get the paint removed.
