General question about Chanel screws


Feb 1, 2019
This isn't an authentication request or about any specific bag. I just have noticed after parousing resale sites that some newer bags usually 2017 onwards it seems some have screws I didn't think were used on leather bags. I always knew Chanel used - mostly and never + and that sometimes hex screws were used. But I read that star shaped (6 pointed) were only used on hard bags like plastic. But I have seen several now with star shaped screws on leather bags. On reputable resale sites... So I guess my question is are Chanel using star shaped as in the attached pic on some leather bags now or should we be leery when seeing this?? Note: These are just a quick google search images for examples... Not bags I am trying to authenticate....
