Is the real gold plated hardware pre 2010 on classic flaps more durable or less prone to chipping off than the new gold hardware of today? Also, is the older real gold plated hardware a deeper gold color than the gold of today?

I can't answer about the chipping because none of my HW has ever chipped, but yes the older HW is a bit more yellow.
