This is a Coach Pocket Purse made in the Factory in New York City. Our shop has listed and sold plenty of pocket purses but this is the first one that stated it was made in New York City on its creed. This bag has a pre-orderly Coach Creed registration number of 334-8724.
It is my opinion the bag is the color tabac but others may think it is putty. Many say I am color challenged so I have included a Coach color chart next to the bag in photo 3 to let you decide.
This bag has a brass turn lock, a leather 44" detachable strap with solid brass lobster claws to attach to brass strap rings on the bag. It has a full length interior pocket, a full length pocket under the flap and a full length pocket on the back of the bag.I have attached a listing from a Coach catalog in the 5th photo as part of the collage. This is how Coach described the bag there:
"D. Pocket purse. No. 9755 $164. Full-length outside back pocket and front pocket under flap. Full-length inside open pocket. 44 inch detachable shoulder strap. 9 1/2" x 5 3/4" x 2" Black, bone, bottle green, British tan, navy, red, mahogany and taupe.
Strap length: 44"
This bag is in good structural condition. There are no rips, tears or holes. Unfortunately it has a major stain on the back of the bag which is the reason the price is low. Moreover, like most vintage bags it has some scuffing and scratching. Please see photos and zoom in for closer inspection.
About NYC Coach Bags
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. Consequently, they are disappearing at an alarming rate and when you buy a New York City Coach bag you are buying more than an accessory, you are making a potential investment.
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
