    Default Re: Authentic vs fake: A history of the Coach creed and serial #'s.

    Hi - I'm new here - what a great site!!! Love it and hope to be around for a while. :)

    I just acquired this bag, and would love to knwo if it is a real or fake. The price tag says it's from a Coach factory store. The serial # is No G0782-F10891.

    Is there a database online somewhere that I can look this up myself?

    Thank you, thank you thank you!

    ^^^ The F that's before the style number would be consistent with a Factory Store item. These do not come up in the drilldown, unfortunately. Can you post pics of the bag? We can help verify that its authentic that way.

    Here it is: NWT COACH CHELSEA Pebble Leather Hobo Tote Purse 10891 - eBay (item 280227434448 end time May-22-08 10:42:25 PDT)

    Hopefully that works for you, it's from ebay and the sale is ended.

    thanks!!

    Thank you! Yes, I bought it - I was fine with it until I had it in my hands, and then I started to wonder. It looks, smells, and feels like a coach - but I've never seen that style before (must have been made just for the factory store?), and for some reason the strap strikes me as weird. The bag is pretty big (12 inches long by 11 or 12 inches high), and the strap is really really thin. My little 7 inch bag has a nice substantial strap, so this one seems weird. It made me wonder.

    Thanks again for your help, this place rocks. :)

    ^^^ Can you post pics? That's an old style number (like 1990s).

    It is a messenger/book bag style. Possibly men's bag.
    Thanks!

    That bag looks very odd. Wait. ::squinting:: Does the creed say made in Thailand? That's a no-no.

    Default Opinion On Two Coach Bags

    Greetings All,

    Could I get opinions on these two Coach bags? I have done a fair amount of reading on this forum and can not confirm to my self these are real. The paragraph on the main post that reads.

    In the 1980's Coach changed the serial numbers to "all numbers" in the format xxxx-xxx. An example of this in the third photo in the ebelle guide. The last three numbers do not relate to the style number, again the serial #s were apparently unique to each bag.

    My bags match this description I am providing photos below, any guidance and assistance is greatly appreciated.


    I will post the photo link after my post count is 1
