^^^ That's very possible - I'm no Chanel expert. I only know the 2.55 reissue, not the previous generation of the design. :shame:

^^^ Well, that one is from Personalshoppers, and I'm sure she called it the Classic Flap.

This one's from an old auction from DGJeans, who is legit, and she definitely called it the Classic Flap.

But again, I could be wrong. Everything I know about Chanel was learned on the internet.:shame:

I think Ebayers call it a "classic" flap because most people don't know it's a 2.55, invented February of 1955.

The saleslady could very well have misled me however!

I think that there is a 2.55 -- and also the 2.55 reissue. Hence the confusion.
ditto...
What makes the 2.55 bag a 2.55 is the way the flap curves upwards. From what I've heard, this sort of curving is really hard to fake. I would be extra careful about the first ebay link- the quilting seems sort of messy and doesn't seem to line up the way authentic ones do.
