This bag is my bag. But, this bag could be your bag, This is a Coach 'Speckled' Saddle Tan Crescent NYC bag that was manufactured at the original Coach Factory very likely sometime in the 1970's. The bag's creed has number 936-2849 and states it was made in New York City.

In 1983 Coach listed this same bag with the following description:

No. 9235. Crescent $82 this body-hugging Coach Bag is especially contoured for a snug fit. Shoulder strap is 1 /4 inches wide and adjusts with a pair of matched solid brass stirrup buckles. The industrial turn lock closure is also made of solid brass. There is an extra compartment inside. Available in saddle, mocha, British tan, sage, black, navy, red, putty, burgundy, and tobacco

Dimensions:

Length: 10 inches
Width: 1 1/4 inches
Height: 10 inches

Condition

If you like looking at this bag this bag was made for you and me. The term "speckled" is used to describe this bag's perfectly worn condition. The bag has considerable wear on its surface. It has multiple scuffs, scratches, speckles and spots on its surface. The speckles and spots appear to have been scattered across portions of the surface like morning dew drops. Although the leather is very distressed, its condition actually enhances the beauty of the leather from certain perspectives. It literally looks like an abstract painting with a title like 'Dew Drops'. When you take this bag with you it's like carrying around with your own abstract painting. You'll be bound for glory.

This is another one of those early Coach styles reminiscent of the early American pioneer days where one can't help but imagine seeing a leather clad Daniel Boone or Davy Crockett climbing over a mountain or hiking across a prairie carrying a bag very much like this one so he has the place to store his shot and powder.

Significance of Made in New York City.

NYC Coach bags are beginning to disappear at an alarming rate. This Coach leather bag is one of the most sought after Coach products by collectors because it is a "New York City Bag". These are some of the highest quality Coach products. "New York City" bags were made in the original Coach factory in New York City that operated from the late 1960's through the mid 1980's. Some, but not all, of the Coach bags produced during this era were designed by the well known American designer Bonnie Cashin. Consequently, when you buy a New York City Coach bag you are buying more than an accessory, you are making a potential investment.

The statement on the creed: "Made in New York City, U.S.A." verifies this bag's origin.
