Yes it’s from 2000-2002.. so 3509 is overpriced? I haven’t found any bag like this for $2500? Do you recommend any seller? Thank you
Price is a very personal matter. I can tell you what it’s worth to me. Only you can tell what price is worth it to you.

I don’t think the seller matters as much as getting it authenticated prior to purchase (recommend Etinceler, no financial disclosures); or if they have a generous return policy, then you can always buy the bag, get it authenticated, then figure it all out at that point in time.

I wouldn’t pay that price for that bag. Before our current quaran-times, one of my favorite things to do was to browse the secondhand shops in Tokyo. If I saw this bag for that price there, I would find it overpriced.

Thank you so much! I will keep looking then. The scuff and scratches on hardware does bother me. I’ll just keep searching. Thank you for your advice.

I just bought a black vintage Chanel classic flap from the same era as yours (2001-2003, serial code starts with "7"). It was from a Japanese store and listed in excellent condition with no obvious flaws. It was also for approx 3500USD. It had all its accessories including box, authenticity card, dust bag etc. I noticed that the price drops if its missing some of these things.

Have a look on this website: https://amorevintagejapan.com/ (they are having 10% off at the moment, which covers my custom fees...). I am not associated with this website. You can also look on ebay, there are also Japanese resellers there with nice vintage bags.

Looking through the listings, you'd be hard pressed to find a reasonable lambskin medium flap vintage for $2500USD nowadays. Maybe $3000USD if you're willing to accept some flaws, missing accessories or if you are happy with an even older model from the 90s.
