This is a lot of two great Coach Handbags; the City Bag, and the original Coach Classic Brief Top Zip. These beautiful Coach Bags are clearly handbags fit to carry just as they are and the minor issues they have are easily overcome. They are clean, odor-free, and genuine. Both have their original hangtags. Please look them over and read everything and ask questions before you buy as they are both sold “as is.” The pictures are very detailed and both will make great additions to your collection.
First, is the ultra-rare, original Coach “Classic Brief” in the unique Natural Leather or Doe, a beautiful shade of Natural Tan. Very few were made making the Classic Brief highly collectible. This is a Coach that whenever it is worn, it will surely bring many compliments. It is that gorgeous.
This beautiful Coach is made from the extra thick, butter-soft, Glove Tanned Cowhide Leather with matching topstitching. On the outside front, there is a full-length pocket with a leather tab to secure the contents. This tab is reminiscent of the Bonnie Cashin slip tab found on the Mail Bag.
Open the oversized leather zipper pull-tab and the solid brass zipper will smoothly open to reveal the clean suede and matching cowhide interior. The suede is like velvet. There are two floating pockets inside with one having a single brass zippered security pocket and below, is the creed with the registration numbers: 0374-216. The other pocket has a slip opening. This is a genuine US made Coach.
This is a very large, luxurious Coach that is perfect for travel or business. The front pocket can easily and securely carry your boarding pass, passport or visa. It has enough depth to carry much more.
There are no tears, no odors (except the smell of fine leather) and no worn piping. The brass is shiny and clean. The strap is thick and supple with minimal signs of use.
The original “one-sided” hangtag is present on the solid brass chain.
The only issue with this fine Coach is it has a few faint stains on the bottom and on the back. It will need leather conditioner but it is indeed fit to carry as is. This is a very rare Coach that will please you.
The dimensions are 9 to 12” L x 8” H x 4 “ D and the adjustable strap is 42” long.
The next is this fine City Bag. There is no question that when the late, great Bonnie Cashin designed the City Bag, she wanted to make a handbag that would endure, be functional, and beautiful. The City Bag has long achieved those goals. It is still being made but the overwhelming preference is the original vintage models. This Coach City is one.
This is City Bags in very soft, rare color of Indigo Blue Glove-Tanned Cowhide with matching topstitching. This City is absolutely in pristine condition inside and out with the only issues being a few wrinkles in the leather from storage. The wrinkles are actually leaving on their own as I keep it stuffed (as you should any handbag) to keep their form. That is the only issues on an otherwise pristine City Bag. You will not go wrong with this one.
The leather is soft, smooth, and silky to touch. The sheen is unblemished. There are no scuffs or worn piping period. The weight of this thick, luxurious leather is truly remarkable.
Under the flap there is a pocket and in the back, there is a pocket as well. The strap is adjustable with the solid brass buckle that gleams with brilliance.
Inside, there's a zippered pocket. The smell of rich, clean leather is strong. This is an original New York City model. There is the creed and the serial number, K1P-9790. There are no cuts, tears, odors, ink, or worn piping on this City. The turn-lock works perfectly.
The original hangtag is present on the solid brass chain.
This is a very nice Coach to add to your collection and to wear. Side by side with a newer, reissued City Bag and the quality, the richness, and the depth of this City Bag is immediately evident. There is no comparison. It is indeed fabulous in every way and will bring many compliments. This is your chance to own the original, not a re-issue.
It measures a convenient 11"L x 8"H x 3 ½ W and the adjustable strap is 42" long.
As always, these fine Coach Handbags will come to you shipped with the utmost care via USPS Priority Mail or your choice of shippers indicated with insurance. Never a handling charge, just the exact shipping to your zip code. I ship all over the world and will gladly combine shipping on multiple purchases.
