This is a vintage NYC Coach Bag known as a Coach Travel Flight Bag. It was assigned style No. 9706 by Coach. This bag is similar to the Coach Skinny Flight Bag. Those of you who have viewed my other listings know I try to include a vintage Coach catalog listing with bags I list. Unfortunately, I do not have any listings preceding 1981 and I don't have a listing for this bag. However, I do have my Coach mentor and friend Diane who can identify just about any Coach Bag and she provided the name and style number. The creed verifies this bag was made in New York City and has registration number of 137-2448. The use of 3 numbers with a dash and then 4 numbers substantiates that this bag was made any time between the mid 1970's and the mid 1980's as pre-orderly creed stamps in the late 80's and early 90's had 4 numbers with a dash followed by 3 numbers. Since it does not appear in my catalogs from 1981 going forward it was likely manufactured before then.

This bag is very similar to the Coach Skinny Flight Bag in design with differences in size and strap options. [ See Skinny Flight bag listing in Collage photo 5] Like the Skinny Flight Bag, this bag has two full length side pockets on either side of the bag for your files, magazines, court rules or air line tickets. There is a good sized middle compartment with a zippered closure to secure its contents. there is another pocket inside the middle compartment where you can keep your keys and smart phone separate. This bag also has brass feet. However, this bag differs from the Skinny Flight Bag in that it was not designed to have an optional carrying strap [ there are no strap rings or strap]. It is also slightly smaller than the Skinny Flight Bag.

Dimensions:

Length: 12 inches
Height: 8.25 inches
Width: 3 inches

Strap Drop: 9 inches

Condition:

This bag is in very good condition. It is structurally sound. However, like most vintage bags over 30 years old this bag has some scuffing and scratching. There is also a tiny nick in the leather beading on one part of the bag. [see photo 5] Please see photos for a better description of the condition and ask for more if you are interested.

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.
Please review the photos carefully because they are part of this piece’s description and condition. Please feel free to ask questions or ask for more photos. Etsy limits the number of photos we can post with listing so we have more available.
