This is a Coach Classic Satchel In British Tan Leather. It took me awhile to find this in the catalogs. It is similar to a Madison bag in shape but it's size is a bit smaller and, unlike the Madison, the zipper closure has an extension on either end. It is also different in that the newer Madison Bags came with Straps while this Classic Satchel does not. ( Both this Satchel and the Madison are featured in the Coach Catalog listing in the collage in photo 5 so you can compare ) This bag has a pre-orderly Coach Creed registration number of 0312-948 which means it was manufactured some time before 1994 and after Coach quit identifying New York City on the creed stamp. The bag was introduced as 'new' in the 1989 Coach Fall Preview catalog so manufacture date for this bag has to be sometime between 1989 and 1994.

This is a really nice little bag with plenty of storage. It has two interior pockets large enough to hold your smart phone, keys and wallet. one zippered and one not. The handles are of the large padded rabbit ear variety. This is what Coach had to say about this bag in the catalog when it introduced it in 1989:

New. No. 9880 Classic Satchel $188

The classic Satchel offers surprising storage in a fashionable shape. The extended top-zip closure provides an especially wide opening to the roomy interior that has an open pocket, plus a zipper pocket for added organization. The soft, reinforced leather handles fit comfortably in your hand orl over your arm for carry convenience. Dimensions 10 7/8" x 6 3/4" x 5 1/2". .

Length: 10 7/8"
Height: 6 3/4"
Width: 5 1/2"


This bag is in very good condition. It is structurally sound and there are no rips, tears or holes. However, like most vintage bags it has some scuffing and scratching. It also has some pen marks which I have pointed out in the collage photos. Please see photos and zoom in for closer inspection.

If you prefer a different style vintage bag, I have many in stock and you can see it at my shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/ProVintageGear
