Help! Is this type of chain normal on a vintage bag?

I'm hoping someone out there can reassure me....

I've just received a vintage bag I purchased on ebay (it's authentic according to the hard working ladies at the 'authenticate this' thread) but I'm not sure if the chain is normal? I have a vintage mini and it has a very heavy chain and the links have flattened areas - the chain on this bag is much lighter in comparison and the links do not show any flattened sections at all. I've attached a pic (I hope it's clear enough to show what I am referring to) which shows the chain on my mini (top) and the chain on my new bag (bottom). Is this normal that the chain looks like this? :-s

I'm certainly not an expert on attaching photos - but hopefully this works!

Thank you for any advice!

Now that I look more closely at the chains of different vintage bags on ebay, I can see lots that have chains like mine - I'm obviously a newbie to Chanel :shame:
