This is a Coach Soft Satchel Style No. 4055 in Taupe. [not to be confused with the Coach Soft Satchel Large Style No 4060 which Coach sold during the 80's as well]. This bag has the Coach Leatherware Logo with the raised letters which my Coach authenticator friends have advised me means this bag was made in the New York City factory after Coach opened other factories outside of New York City. It has registration number 976-0715. The leather on this bag is 'taupe' which was available in 1990. [See 1990 listing in collage photo 5 above].

True to its name this satchel has very soft leather. It is has many other features as well including; two interior pockets, one zip and the other slip, a zippered closure, large 'rabbit ear like' padded leather handles with a 7 inch drop. The bag was designed to have an extra large opening and extra soft leather. This is what Coach had to say about this bag when it listed it in 1987:

No. 4055 Soft Satchel. $140. The classic lines of the familiar Doctor Satchel have been handsomely redefined to complement the supple qualities of our lightweight leather. Side tabs add to the pouch like appearance, and the extended zipper provides an easy, extra-wide opening. Inside are two handy pockets: One open pocket and the other with a zipper closing. Dimensions 11" x 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". Black, blue, Cocoa, red, saddle, wine shown on page 28. Pictured in wine. [ See 1990 Holiday listing in photo 5 above for this Taupe Satchel]

This bag is in fair to good condition. It has no rips, tears or holes. However, it has some issues which is why it is priced so low. The major flaw is the zipper. Although it functions most of the time, there are times when the zipper teeth separate when zipping closed. When this happens you back the zipper off and try again where it will likely zip closed properly. However, this tells me it may be on the verge of malfunctioning completely. In addition, like most vintage bags over 25 years old it does show some signs of age. There are some wear marks on the corners, light spots overall, and some scratches on the bag. I have cleaned this bag with Lexol but it needs conditioning.

We do have another Coach Taupe Soft Satchel for sale in much better condition. If you are interested in that satchel please link to it here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/263205853/blackfridayweekend-coach-taupe-leather?ga_search_query=soft+satchel&ref=shop_items_search_1
