This a vintage burgundy 'Coach Slim Satchel Compact' carrying your Ipad or Mini Ultrabook. It is very likely that if you carry one of these to work or class no one else will have anything like it. This is a genuine Coach burgundy leather satchel. Its creed states it was made in New York City and has registration # 227-0020.
This NYC Coach Slim Satchel Compact is an ideal case for most mini electronic devices. The interior is 12 inches long, 2 inches wide and 7 inches high. Any IPad, Ultrabook, Notebook, Kindle, or other electronic device under 12 inches long and 7" high or less will fit securely in the interior of this classy little burgundy leather satchel.

Back in the day (Coach Spring- Summer Catalog 1982) Coach listed the Slim Satchel Compact next to the Slim Satchel Standard. This is what they had to say about them:
Number 9430 [different model not this listing]
Satchel standard $82
Number 9425 [ This listing ]
Slim Satchel compact $76
One is smaller than a briefcase. The other is larger than a clutch. Both have inside pocket and close securely with a solid brass industrial zipper. All 10 coach colors shown on page 3. [ for the Spring Summer 1982 listing along with all 10 colors on page 3 -see collage picture # 5 above]
This bag is in excellent condition. It has no rips, tears, or holes. It is structurally sound. it has very little scuffing and scratching. The handles are a bit darker than they were new. It is my opinion this bag was rehabilitated by someone who knew what they were doing. The photos in the collage show the condition best. However, overall this bag is in great condition for a bag that is surely over 30 years of age. See photos and ask for more if you have questions.
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.
