Hello!! Im planning to purchase a pre-loved flap and I was wondering how these colors are IRL. I have three that I'm looking at. Could you please tell me what the colors are even maybe based on their serial numbers? I'm hoping to get a rich, dark red. thank you!

the first pic is: 15661709, its said to be current season 2012
second pic is: 15148471
third pic is: 16699196, 2012

thank you!

It seem like the 3rd picture is the best of those three flaps. The 3rd one seem like to be current season 12A true red. The 1st picture maybe is 12C dark red. I've bought the 12A true red last month and love it. It's truely red and suitable for all occasion. Good luck in deciding. ;)

Looks like to me:

1) 12C was more of a Brick Red
2) 11A was dark red
3) 12A is a true red, but I wouldn't say it's necessarily "dark".

Is the third one bright? Or is it just a rich color? Brick red hmm. Sounds like this would be dull? Is it confusing to want a rich red but I want it dark not too bright a color? Lol

I bought the 12C red over the phone and when I went to pick it up in store I ended up doing a return instead of taking it home because to me it looked like dried blood IRL (sorry if that's too grotesque!!). But yah very dull color w/ very strong brown undertone.

This is 12c and I love it. It isn't bloody red but not dark red either if it makes sense

Aw that's what I didn't want. The brown undertone. Dried blood hmm that gave me a very visual of what the bag looks like lmao
