Ladies, I have a question about the mademoiselle lock. Yesterday I saw a black double flap patent bag with a mademoiselle lock that is really shiny compare to all the other reissue next to it. All the other reissues on the shelf does not have that shine but the usual "vintage" mademoiselle lock look. So does it mean that the black patent I saw is a classic instead of a reissue?

The Fall Act 1 patent reissues had shiny silver HW. The Fall Act II cracked patents have the usual Ruthenium (aged silver) HW.
