This is black leather Coach Pocket Purse. This bag has pre-orderly creed number 0609-037 stamped on its Coach Creed which also states that it was made in the U.S.A. I photoed this bag in front of my Christmas gift which is the recently released book on the history of Coach commemorating its 75th anniversary. The book is not included.

It 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 the 1995 fall catalog ( the year this was manufactured) in the 5th photo as part of the collage. This is how Coach described the bag then:

"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.

Dimensions:

L 9.5" X H 5.5" X W 2"

Strap length: 44"

This bag is a bargain at $45.00. As noted above, in the 1995 Coach Catalog has the Pocket Purse 9755 listed for $164.00 which is the equivalent to $257.00 in 2015 dollars.

Condition:

This bag is in a somewhat distressed condition due to tears on 3 spots on the beading. However, these beading tears do not affect the bag's integrity and it is still structurally sound. While there are tears in the beading from rubbing against coarse surfaces there are no rips or holes in the bag. Moreover, like most vintage bags it has scuffing and scratching. (A product known as Leather CPR available on Amazon will reduce the appearance of scuffing. For the best depiction of the condition of this bag please see photos and zoom in for closer inspection.
