Chanel Classic Flap Bags are favorites of certain collectors, although since the release of the Chanel Reissue 2.55 has caused all sorts of problems for those trying to identify the Classic Flap.
A couple of things to remember to help with that is the original Chanel Classic Flap Bags had the double CC turn-style lock, whereas the reissues had what was called the Mademoiselle lock, which is identified by its retangular shape.
Another characteristic of the original Chanel Classic Flaps were the bag handles, which would include interwoven leather in the chain links. The newer reissues don't have that.
