The bag is quiet new from 2008, and only used for couple times, I don't own light color bag, that's why I'm so curious about the Hologram stickers.

thanks for all your answer, very helpful.

the item number on tag is 07A A35310Y04271. If she got in 2008, that means it might be used a lot, right? But outside of the bag looks still pretty new. that's kind confusing me too.

It's 2007. I also depends on what she put inside the bag. Keep in mind that the glue used for the sticker may react to the dye in the leather lining; thus, turning yellowish. Disclaimer: I'm not a chemist so that was a guess.

Did the seller actually say that was glue in the corner of the flap??? Looks pretty gross and a little obvious on such a light colored bag. Esp since it's right out there on the flap. I would ask that specific question to be sure about what it actually is to determine whether you can remove it or will have to live with it... that's just me because I HATE SUPRISES when it comes to my Chanels, pre-loved or not :flowers:

^Chanel does use glue. It began as clear color and then after years of exposure to the environment, it can turn yellow. To me, it appears that the craftsperson overused the glue.
