    The number is l4E14401 and the creed reads:

    "THIS IS A COACH BAG. IT IS HANDMADE OF GENUINE FULL-GRAIN LEATHER, AND IS SPECIALLY TREATED TO MAINTAIN A NEW APPEARANCE OVER TIME. MADE IN ITALY"

    The leather is black and the lining is a light brown with the creed on leather sewn into the lining. The body is rounded.

    hi if you can post a photo... I'm no expert with coach but I have been obssessing about it for months that I think I might be able to identify if it's fake or real... but by the sound of it, I think it might not be auth... but have the other girls look at it and yea it's better if you put up photos. :)

    Attaching pictures as requested. Sorry I didn't think of this first.

    ^^^ The bag appears to be a Madison Flap bag that was made before Coach made the switch to having the place of origin written towards the beginning of the creed. These bags, however, were made in Italy. It is very unusual for Coach bags to be made there, but this line was. I can't really see the creed patch very well in the picture. Is that a bullseye stamped up in the right hand corner?

    I don't see a bulls eye on the tag. At the very top - centered - is the word COACH

    Then the creed I wrote in my first email is below. Following the creed - also centered - is MADE IN ITALY

    At the bottom is No. l4E-4401

    That's it for the sewn-in tag.

    ^^^ I could just swear that there is a bullseye in the corner there. The picture is blurry though, am I imagining it?

    Here's a picture of the creed from a different style:

    Do you see the bullseye in the upper right corner there? It looks like yours has one too, but its down lower and overlapping the border around the creed. LOL! Are my eyes playing tricks on me?

    Anyway, the bullseye means that the bag came from a Coach Factory Outlet.

    Here's a better picture of the whole tag. Maybe I don't know what I'm looking for??

    ^^ It's authentic!
    bRs was just wondering if it had an "O" with a circle around it. (bullseye) That would mean that it was from a Coach Factory Outlet.

    LOL! Yeah, that's what I'm talking about. I've seen some of these bags pop up on ebay that were from a factory store. Anyways, regardless, I do believe the bag is authentic. Very rarely did Coach have stuff made in Italy, but this particular line is an exception.

    Not always. The bullseye is supposed to indicate that it came from an outlet, but the bullseye, too, is faked in a fake bag. Trust me, I've seen it. I think this bag is a fake. Sorry!
