Need authentication for a briefcase with repair.
I have a weird one - a briefcase that seems to be a Beekman with a really bad clasp 'repair' (remodel?). I can see the repair isn't original, but everything about it otherwise appears legit.. would appreciate input.
Purchased at a local thrift (cheep).
Approx. Size 16" L x 13" H x 4"

AGREE THAT IT'S FAKE

Thanks Dem Ram & Hyacinth.. re the FrankenBeekman it's the number that is off on the briefcase, is that correct? I want to be sure its not just that craptastic buckle and tab that someone replaced the turnlock assembly with that is making you think fake :) Can you educate me on what the indicators are? Thanks as always for your help and info.

It's not the style number 5266 that makes the briefcase a fake. That is the correct style number for a Beekman Brief.

It's the PIT preceeding the number that makes it a fake.

Coach uses A through M in the FIRST position of the creed...so P would never be the first LETTER on an authentic Coach.

I'm not an expert on newer styles either. Please be patient and hopefully someone who is will be able to answer your question.
