I was looking forward to receive my 12A Red M/L Caviar Classic Flap after i bought my 12A Red Jumbo and realized Jumbo was too big on me. I was quite disappointed when I received TWO of my 12A M/L bags (I ordered 2 cus I know one of them has a small scratch on the inner flap and another store called me at the same time about another availability - hence I bought two).

I was shocked that when I compared the 2 M/Ls side by side.... both the COLOR & LEATHER LOOK AND FEEL DIFFERENT!!!

The first M/L:
Looks Dull with lots of Pebble that your hands can FEEL it! Also the quilts are less PUFFY, but the leather feels more rigid than the other one.

The Second M/L:
Looks a lot more Shiny and the quilts look and feel a lot more PUFFY and the leather feels Softer

I compared the 2 M/Ls that were made in France in 16XX Series to my Red Jumbo that was made in Italy in 16 Series and felt that my JUMBO looks the best of the 3 Red Bags. The leather of the Jumbo looks SHINY, Quilts are very PUFFY, and not as many pebbles and less rigid. I'm starting to think maybe I should stick with my Jumbo!

CAN YOU GALS TELL THE COLOR AND LEATHER (PEBBLES) DIFFERENCE FROM THE PICTURES? WHICH M/L WOULD YOU PICK? THE MORE PEBBLES BUT LESS SHINY ONE OR THE SHINY, MORE PUFFY QUILTS WITH SOFTER CAVIAR LEATHER (NOT AS RIGID)?

I think they are machine made... the differences might be caused by the LEATHER (each batch is different)... I'm not sure which one to keep.....I like RIGID Leather as it tends to be more durable but the color is in a darker red....I also like the SHINNY less PEBBLEs one but it doesnt feel like Caviar Leather..... So Confused!!!

2 Pic? Which one do you like more?

The one on the right looks nicer but it could be lighting. Put your wallet n some other stuff in the bags. Wear a white shirt and wear the bag in front of the mirror. Hopefully you'll be able to make a decision. On another note- when I see your name/avatar I think it's my SIL. But she's not on TPF. Her first name starts with W and last name is Lee. Lol
