    It was new without tag. I got the deal from ebay for US$ 102.50. The shoulder straps have a little signs of use and the nickel hardware + zipper are a little rusty. The seller said the style is from their collection of several years ago, although unused condition. What do you think? Shall i return or keep it?

    Sometimes people stretch the truth a little bit. There have been times when I saw something listed as new with tags and it had obviously been used. I did a completed listing search for "Coach 10125". For pre-owned condition, the ones that actually sold were sold for $75. So hopefully that helps.

    Hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone could help me authenticate a purse passed down by my grandma. I believe this purse may be vintage due to the fact that the coach logo is engraved instead of sewed into the purse. Also there is no other mention of the brand other than the engraving. This is what it says: "THIS IS A COACH BAG. IT WAS HANDCRAFTED IN THE UNITED STATES OF COMPLETELY NATURAL GLOVE-TANNED COWHIDE. THE VARIATIONS IN THE GRAIN ARE CHARACTERISTIC OF NATURAL FULL GRAIN LEATHER". Underneath it is followed by the serial number 'k3h 9058'. There is no dash in between the numbers. Can anyone please help autheticate. I would also want to know how old it may be? Thanks! :)

    This is supposed to be a Legacy Hobo. Without pictures we can't tell you much. Going off of the creed and serial number format, this bag was probably from the 1990s. I'm not sure when they stopped making this style.

    I'm not familiar with this style. I don't see anything that looks concerning though.

    Hi, All,

    Am new to the Coach world. Got this while I was on vacation. It is previously owned. I posted these pictures on another online forum, and got a single knowledgeable opinion. I took it to the Coach outlet and got another, likely less knowledgeable opinion. (And because of all the uncertainty, and because they were having a HUGE sale, I walked out with two authentic bags and the one that appears below...which is of questionable authenticity.) I am looking for any other opinions.

    Also, does anyone know specifically, what year Coach changed from serial numbers to registration numbers?

    Thanks for whatever help anyone can provide.

    This doesn't look authentic.

    I'm not terribly good with vintage, but this looks very Coach to me. The creed and serial number indicate it is from the late 1970s. They didn't make the serial number transition until the early 1990s.

    Hello everyone! I would appreciate it if you could share your opinion about this Coach bag. I got it in a second hand shop and I think it's vintage. The model looks just like one of the last collection designs, though. Doesn't look like a fake to me, but I'd like to hear other opinions too. Thanks in advance

    Monstre Charmant, the bag looks real to me. it is definitely a vintage design.

    Simply devine, i would wait to hear from one of the mods. I am not familiar with that particular bag.
