This is a Coach Soft Satchel Style No. 4055 in Taupe. [not to be confused with the Coach Soft Satchel Large Style No 4060 which Coach sold during the 80's as well]. This bag has the Coach Leatherware Logo with the raised letters which my Coach authenticator friends have advised me means this bag was made in the New York City factory after Coach opened other factories outside of New York City. It has registration number 0171-001. The leather on this bag is 'taupe' which was available in 1990. [See 1990 listing in collage photo 5 above].

True to its name this satchel has very soft leather. It is has many other features as well including; two interior pockets, one zip and the other slip, a zippered closure, large 'rabbit ear like' padded leather handles with a 7 inch drop. The bag was designed to have an extra large opening and extra soft leather. This is what Coach had to say about this bag when it listed it in 1987:

No. 4055 Soft Satchel. $140. The classic lines of the familiar Doctor Satchel have been handsomely redefined to complement the supple qualities of our lightweight leather. Side tabs add to the pouch like appearance, and the extended zipper provides an easy, extra-wide opening. Inside are two handy pockets: One open pocket and the other with a zipper closing. Dimensions 11" x 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". Black, blue, Cocoa, red, saddle, wine shown on page 28. Pictured in wine. [ See 1990 Holiday listing in photo 5 above for this Taupe Satchel]

This bag is in very good condition. It has no rips, tears or holes and is very clean inside and outside. However, like most vintage bags over 25 years old it does show some signs of age. There are some wear marks on the corners and some scratches on the bag. However, these are not as substantial as other bags this age. The other issue this bag has is that it zipper pull tag is missing. [see collage photo] I have used a metal Coach hang tag and chain as a remedy for other bags with this issue and I have one available for this bag as well if you request it.
