Hi. Just an observation here from the sidelines. What you are seeing is the logo for PRYM. Prym is a very old company which produced metal fasteners. Until seeing your post, I'd only ever seen Prym on snaps, usually on vintage Cartier. However, Prym has been connected to Eclair, which is a familiar name in zipper pulls for Chanel. They also have been connected to Fiocchi Snaps, another name familiar to Chanel lovers.
If you look at the Fiocchi Snaps website you will see the Prym logo along with Fiocchi and EP, which is another familiar logo of Chanel zipper pulls. I think (trying to figure it out here) that EP possibly stands for Eclair Prym, because those two companies were or are (I can't tell all too complicated) connected. How FLOX and CCC fit into this picture are beyond me though.
The only reason I know all this stuff is because we have a series 3 Chanel keyholder which has Prym snaps. I thought it was an unusual logo to see on Chanel and researched it just a few days ago.
Hope this helps. Was planning to post some info on the general thread on this but your question came up while I was still thinking it over.
Thanks. One more question pls. I've seen the authenticity cards of some of the vintage bags looking very new. This makes me suspicious. Doesn't the color or imprints on the card fade or something after a long time?
Item: 100% authentic guaranteed chanel black chain handbag
listing number: 140369762184
comments: I have no pictures of the interior of the bag, hologram or serial number so am going solely based on the exterior of the bag.
Comments: I read from http://forum.purseblog.com/chanel-sh...ps-308404.html that 'Early 0XXXXXX series hologram stickers (1XXXXX to 2XXXXX) did not include the '0' on the stickers; thus, they contain a 6 digit serial number. But the authenticity cards include the '0' in front of the serial number, making it 7-digit.' Does that mean this bag is fake because the sticker begins with 0 and 7 digits?
