    Hello, I would like to know if anyone could help me find out if this is a real Coach or not. It is a black leather shoulder bag. Number inside is No E3S-9549. Also would like to know retail on this also. I can post pics if I can figure it all out. Thanks so much!

    Is this the pic of your bag? If it is then, it is authentic. As for the price, I am not sure how much it is.

The crooks have been making common styles like Carlys, Sig Stripes, Galley Totes, etc for several years now and the real professionals have gotten very good at it.

    Don't ever depend on something like a Drilldown pic, serial number, zipper, price tag or anything else on a bag or wallet to prove it's real. The only thing they can prove is that the item's fake if the crooks made a mistake.

    And no, TRobertson, not all Coach bags have YKK zippers - but almost all fakes do. YKK zippers can be bought anyWHERE by anyONE, and they can be counterfeited just as easily as anything else. ANYTHING A MANUFACTURER CAN MAKE, A FAKER CAN FAKE. Don't ever forget that.

    Just so you know, I wasn't trying to be rude or anything. I was just confused because it looked like you didn't agree with what I was saying. Sorry...

    Default Coach Bag

    I just joined this site and I need help to authenticate my coach bag. I got it from a friend whom says it is real but I want to be absolutely certain that it is, because a friend gave it to her and said that it was. If any one can help me out I really appreciate it!! The serial number inside is E043-9749 I tried to attach a link to a pic of my bag so I hope I did it correct?? Thanks!! :)
