Hi, I came across this item on eBay and was wondering if the brass hardware ('screws' or 'studs' ) are supposed to be flat instead of protruding. The seller had the corners replaced at LV as stated in the auction. Does LV normally repair an item back to its original state or they occassionally 'change' a thing or two just like what appears to be in this case. Here's the link: http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170132822409&sspagename=ADME:B:RTQ:CA:1 Any comments are very much appreciated. Thanks.
