Seasonal classic flap - chain and CC different gold?

I JUST noticed the color difference on my 22a dark beige medium cf. honestly if I had not read about it one Instagram post and put the chain strap next to the CC as a result to check it I wouldn’t have noticed and I doubt others will too.

But yes, I do see the difference when I place them next to each other with the CC hardware looking more silver and the strap chain being yellow Gold. I’m fine though as the dark beige color is my personal favorite beige/taupe shade from Chanel.

Did you end up keeping the bag? Are other Chanel bags having this mismatched hardware as well or just CF’s?

Yup I ended up keeping the bag. After some time it didn't really bother me. Like you said, hard to tell unless you're looking for it. I went into a Chanel store twice after I noticed and all other seasonal classic flaps I saw had the same difference.
