My new Chanel 2.55 Reissue. "Reissue" refers to the bag that was reintroduced in 2005 based on the original 1955 style. (The "classic flap" by Lagerfeld with interlocking C's appeared in the 80's.) 2.55 stands for Feb 1955. Three original color offerings were black with ghw (gold hardware), grey with distressed shw and white with shw in distressed calfskin. The style continued to be produced after 2005 in various leathers/colors. Now commonly referred to as “2.55” or Reissue.
