I bought a preloved Classic double flap medium 11 series and i noticed the turnlock has a letter W. I already had it authenticated but I’m a bit worried I bought a super fake. Has anyone seen a letter W on the turnlock

Hi. That hallmark means the HW is gold plated. Chanel stopped plating the gold in early 2009, the 12 series. since your bag is 11 series, this is correct and nothing to worry about.

Was curious what “w” stood for and thought it was a super fake. Good to know. Thanks for the info
