    Please check the facts - start by asking yourself what's preventing fakes makers from buying real YKK zippers - or fake ones, for that matter. This whole YKK nonsense makes no sense at all:

    eBay Guides - Coach and the YKK Zipper Myth - the Basic Facts

    And some newer bags especially Outlet ones don't have YKK zippers marked YKK either.
    I sort of skipped over that comment. Yes, a lack of YKK zippers doesn't necessarily mean anything. My concern with the bag was that the style number didn't match the style of the bag.

    Default New Here and need help

    I just acquired a nice Coach purse/handbag. I need help from someone to find out how much I should sell it for and where to sell it. I do not know the name of the bag but the number on the inside of the purse is: DOJ - 9470. The label above the number says:

    This is a Coach Bag. It was manufactured in Chine from the finest haircalf trimmed with genuine cowhide. Its superior craftsmanship and attention to detail reflects our commitment to enduring quality.

    Thx, Sharon

    I am not familiar with this bag. It appears to be some sort of Demi style. What are the measurements? Since it is pre-owned, you probably won't get a ton for it. You can try listing it on ebay to see what it will go for.

    This isn't the same style, but it is a small sized bag in the haircalf. That might give you an idea though.

    Default Coach Bag

    I have a Coach bag that I think may be vintage rare.
    Zipper pull -TALON
    Under the word COACH it says LEATHERWARE.
    There is a small anchor on each of the dog leash clasps.
    Under the creed it says MADE IN NEW YORK CITY, USA.
    On the reverse side of the pull out flap that has the Coach creed there is a two digit embossed number- 86 or 98 depending on how it is viewed.
    There is no cloth lining, just suede, the same color as the bag.
    Can anyone tell me what I have here and what it is worth ?

    Default Re: Coach Handbag: Please help authenticate purse! (Part 2)

    Measurements on this purse is: 5 1/2 inches tall, base is 10 1/2 inches long and 3 1/4 wide. I am attaching a picture of the tag inside of the purse. Can anyone tell me for sure if this is a real coach and an estimate of what it is worth. Also, where to sell other then ebay. Thank you, Sharon DSCN0322-1 (800x600).jpgDSCN0324-1 (800x600).jpg

    It sounds like a Demi. From what I can see, it looks fine. It's hard to say how much it is worth. It's only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. If you look at the auction I linked to previously, you will see that that bag sold for $45. So that might give you an idea.

    We can't tell if something's real or fake just from a creed photo. We need photos of the rest of the bag, especially when it has a serial number starting with J8*-

    A link to whatever listing you bought it from would also help.
