I just got my Cerf Tote today!!! :yahoo:after much thought, I decided to go for Black with GHW. Thank you to all the wonderful TPF'ers who made comments and helped me decide :biggrin:

I am curious though, my interlocking CC's do not have a "marking on them" like the one on my E/W flap. I asked the Chanel SA about it and she did not know...does this mean my gold hardware is not gold plated...?

Also, how useful is the shoulder strap? Do you actualy use it?

There are several threads about this topic, but Chanel hasn't put markings in the gold hardware in years which seems to suggest that their hardware is no longer gold-plated.

I have never used the shoulder strap on mine and it is a few years old. I can carry mine over the shoulder without a coat.
Here is a pic of my Cerf .... the handles have stretched from use and it is pretty soft and floopy :love: (group pic with all of my Chanels though)
