This is a Coach Navy Blue Leatherware Companion Bag. It is a Pre-orderly creed bag Made in the U.S.A. With Coach Creed No. 160-6805. The Companion Bag has been assigned style No 9300.
This bag is similar to the Coach 'Basic Bag' . However, while the styles are similar this bag holds much more than the Basic Bag. There is a larger inside slip pocket that measures 6" by 4" . The front of bag has 2 pockets divided by stitching, one is 5" by 5", the adjoining one is 5" by 4" giving the owner much more room to store keys, glasses, cell phones and other items that need to be readily accessible. This has a solid brass industrial zipper and a detachable 44" strap with solid brass lobster claw clips to attach it to the brass rings on the bag.
Coach had this to say about the Companion Bag when it listed it for the first time in 1986:
"New. No. 9300 companion bag $102. Perfect company anywhere. Styled in the classic tradition of our basic bag, but holds so much more. Two convenient outside pockets for change, keys and glasses. Handy inside pocket. Solid brass industrial zipper. Comes with 44 inch detachable shoulder strap fitted with solid brass nautical hardware. A shorter (36") shoulder strap can be substituted upon request. Dimensions: 11" x 7"x 3 3/4". All 10 coach colors shown on page 2. Shown in bone." [We show a different listing in our collage from the 1989 Summer Preview Catalog- see collage photo 5]
Shoulder Strap: 44"
This bag is a bargain at $65.00 In 1989 the list price of this bag was $128.00 which is equivalent to $251.24 in 2016 dollars. http://www.dollartimes.com/inflation/dollars.php
This bag is in very good to excellent condition. All stitching is perfect and the top zipper closure works smoothly. The brass hardware in very good vintage condition as is the strap. There are no rips tears or holes in the bag. However, like any 30 year old bag, it does have some scuffs and scratches bur very few for a bag this old. This bag was clearly well maintained. See photos and ask for more if you need them.
