This bag is in excellent structural condition. It has no rips, tears, or holes. However, it does bear lines of experience. This case has a visible stain on one corner of the bag which may be from water or some other substances. See Photos 4 and the photo of the end of the bag in the collage. I have cleaned and conditioned this bag with Leather CPR.

I have been advised by some of my Coach mentors that a stain can be eliminated by dying the bag. However, I have resisted dying this bag for the same reason I have resisted dying my hair. I believe all things vintage are unique because of their life experiences and marks like this stain give vintage bags their character. If you disagree with me buy this bag and dye it. But if you don't disagree, buy it and carry it with pride.

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.

Please visit our shop and check out the other professional gear and briefcases available. We have plenty of Coach products, including some rare NYC Coach bags from the 1970's. We also have briefcases, attache's and messenger bags manufactured by Hartmann, Fossil, Hidesign, Goldpfeil, and other well known manufacturers.
