The purse still has paper on the shoulder strap and on the side straps. It has the Coach patch on the inside of the lining...which has the Coach logo on it as well. It is leather and i am guessing straw(kind of weaved to make the body. The body of the purse looks funny though. It has seams that run down the middle of the bag which makes it look odd. It has a serial number "No. M04K-5659". Can someone tell me how to post a pic if i need to?
    It's hard to tell anything without pictures, but the style/serial number you gave belongs to a scribble tote.

    Thanks BrS. Also are there any differences in the bags sold in the outlets, as opposed to the same style sold in the Coach Stores?

    For some bags there are. But I don't really think so for this particular style. Don't quote me on that though! LOL!

    Default VINTAGE COACH HANDBAG, HAVE YOU SEEN ONE, OR KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT?

    I have a coach handbag that I have never seen before. I am a avid collector of coach handbags but because I have never seen one like this before, I was wondering if you have and if you can tell me anything about it. Please review the photos and more photos can found in my photo album and tell me what you think!
    Thanks so much,

    I think it is part of the boonie cashin collection, because of the design of the handle, but I am not for certin.

    Thanks so much,
    Is it possible to get a clearer pic of the creed stamp?

    My gut feeling is "fake" - the creed stamping is much too recent for a Bonnie Cashin bag (which usually wouldn't have a creed stamp, just a small "Coach" plaque) and doesn't have that sharp clean look a Coach stamping should have. It says "made in the United States" which was used mostly in the mid 80s to early 90s and would always have had a serial number. Early Coaches from between the Bonnie Cashin era (1975 or so) and the early 1980s would say Made in New York City USA.

    The zipper pull on the inside pocket is too recent, the font on the Coach logo doesn't look right but the pic is too blurry to see it clearly, and the stitches around the edges of the bag look too long.

    It's definitely not a Bonnie Cashin and I doubt if it's even a Coach, but you might want to ask at the Ebay Shoes & Purses forum where there are several extremely knowledgeable vintage Coach experts (I'm not one of them, obviously). And see if you can get a clearer pic of the creed using the Macro setting on your camera.

    I think so. I think the patch is just being bent funny in order to get it out in the light so a picture could be taken. It makes it look kinda distorted.

    Hi, I'm just joined this forum and would love some help determining whether the Coach bag my husband just bought off Ebay is authentic! I think it is, but am not an expert.

    Okay,

    Hi I am a newbie to your purse forum website. It is a great community though, you all seem to look out for one another. KUDOS!!! I have an idea for another bag forum SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING BAG...lol. I am a thriftstore junkie. I just recently found a coach purse for $10.00 it is in almost perfect condition. It is a smaller hadbag made of purple suede (eggplant color) . I am almost positive it's the real thing. The stitching is perfect, the lining isnt that cheap material that falls apart the minute you take it home. I also have two more coach all leather bags that I bought at other thrift stores. All together for a nice dooney and burke wallet, and three coach purses I spent about $100. That is not bad shopping if I say so myself.
