    Default Re: Can someone authenticate this Coach tote please?

    Could anyone authenticate this coach bag I bought on eBay? I am wondering if it is fake or not because of the 99999 serial number. The person I bought it from said that those numbers were used for prototype coach bags but I have my doubts. could anyone please help me?

    Default Is my Coach real?

    Hello, I'm new here and need to see if this Coach bag is real or fake. My sister bought it from a friend, who bought it from a friend who got it at a Coach store in Knoxville, TN. I've been told that it's fake, but it looks and feel pretty real to me. Any suggestions?

    Default id and advice

    I have came into ownership of this coach bag. I know very little about it and I'm unsure what to do with it.

    I have my doubts if its real or not. The more research I do, the more I'm leaning toward real. The print seems to be right and the quality seems legit. Anything yall can tell from the pictures would be very helpful. If I try to sell it, I dont want to rip anyone off if it is indeed fake. tag reads No AJ2 6094

    The one problem with the bag is the zipper is damaged. I'll post a picture of what I mean. I took the bag to my local alterations shop. They said that they could not fix it and that it appears that the zipper has already been replaced in the past. The zipper in the bag right now doesnt look like it came with the bag. Any advice on how I can get it repaired? I was told it was somewhat labor extensive to place it. Is this something coach would fix...if its real?

    Also I have no idea what model this bag is or the value.

    So,
    1. real or fake?
    2. Best route to fix zipper?
    3. value if real?
    4. value if fake?

    I have pics on my photobucket but it wont let me post pics. best way to get around that?

    Sometimes by looking at pics can be wrong as well

    so how do people verify if its real? I don't want to spend the time or money to fix a bag that isnt worth anything.

    Given these few photos, it looks to be real, the double cc pattern is correct and perfectly centred.

    Can you give a closer image of the tag and also check the zipper ... Coach zipper would be YKK zippers. Greater/more detailed photos might help.

    Although I see that the top portion's double C's is folded half way on the 'C' that's worrying... will have to check if coach does this as ost coach bags I see don't do so.

    EDIT: Apparently Coach does cut half-way on occasions

    Unfortunately I feel this is a fake not only is the serial number suspicious but the tag looks wrong it ought to look more like this:

    I believe this is the Bleecker Floral Model...

    Compare it to this

    It could be the camera and lighting but the colour looks off in yours, the shape on the upper portion of the bag seems slightly off as well (too straight and less of a hobo effect?)

    Default Re: id and advice

    Ive read over that site before. It was pretty helpful and its the main reason I now belive that bag is real.

    I did see something that caught my eye. "If you are about to purchase from an unauthorized dealer, call Coach, their representatives will be more then willing to verify if the authenticity number matches the style." Can I call them and theyd be able to do a better search? Only problem is I dont know what the name of the style is.

    Post a pic here and someone in this site is likely to be able to identify the style. :)

    Default Re: Can someone authenticate this Coach tote please?

    Thank you for your help. I suspected it was a fake. Especially since the person I bought it from is now selling another one from her store that does not go through E bay. Unfortunately I do not have any recourse because it is too late to go through E bay with a complaint since I have gone past the number of days requred to open a case. I just wish I could out her on her selling these fakes. Any Ideas?

    Just in case, ebay gives us up to 45 days some people has the misconception that it's 30 days.

    If it too late the best I can advice is to report the item. It might count as a point against the seller or have ebay at least investigate. It might not guarantee your money back but it might help so he/she would not dupe other unsuspecting buyers.

    Online Customer Support

    If it's too late to report that particular item you might be able to watched that seller and report other potential fakes that he/she will be posting for sale.

    Thanks. I know she is also selling them on her website, and not just on eBay.
