what's the difference between the 04 and 05 pewters? is there a discernible difference?

and do u think a pewter is worth getting? i am always afraid of the effect of rubbing in the metallics

^lovely64, she's asking about pewter the leather color, and not pewter the hardware.:yes:

ponypie, the 04 pewter has an antiqued, matte pewter hardware and the 05 pewter has a shiny silver, almost stainless steel like hardware.

If you do a search, you'll find lovelygarments' side by side pics of 04 and 05 pewter Firsts. good luck!

Definitely worth getting IMHO, I adore my '04 First. My bag doesn't show any rubbing yet but honestly the day it does I really won't mind, it will just make it look edgy. I'll just wear it with jeans and casual stuff when it reaches that point.
