    Default Real or fake?

    I just found this website today because I'm trying to authenticate a Coach handbag that I just bought. My best friend for 25+ years works with a girl that has this purse addiction, so the other day my friend brought me 2 huge bags of all kinds of purses, DB, Coach, LV, Kathy VanZeeland etc. and I picked out a Coach bag that I'm absolutely in love with, I paid $200 for this what I think was originally close to $400 - however everything I'm reading has got me questioning if I bought a real or fake? I mean the bag is beautiful, sturdy, the hardware is no doubt very high quality, it has the serial number on the tag inside - XXXXX-XXXXX but I have read that if the zipper isnt YKK then its a fake. Is that true?

    You may have better luck in the Coach section. Try posting here:
    Coach Handbag: Please help authenticate purse!
    We're going to need clear photos of the bag, including the creed patch.
    I'm not sure if every single Coach bag that was ever made has YKK brand zippers. In fact, I'm thinking many vintage bags did not have them. But I know that every single one that I have laid my hands on has had them.

    Default Authenticate my Coach

    Someone checked the serial number on my Coach purse (G0773-11496) earlier and told it was a Patchwork Carly - did that mean it was real?

    What about this one KO5S-3573 - my friends Coach -- she's not sure if that is KO or K0?

    How does one look up the purse with the serial number? Thanks, Tammy

    It's likely. We'd need to see detailed pictures of the bag in order to be 100% sure since some of the fakes now actually have the correct numbers on their creed patches.
