It's authentic (1995) but that seller really should change her name!

The bag was correctly removed. It's fake.

There's way more wrong than just the style number not being correct for the bag. The creed is illegible and the serial number font is incorrect for the year and factory in which it was (supposedly) made, the hardware and turnlock are wrong and it doesn't appear that the interior zipper goes fully across the bag.

Before listing, it's a good idea to verify authenticity of any item that you didn't personally buy from a legitimate retailer.
Thank you so much! I have removed it from another place where I had it listed.

And lesson learned. I will be doing more careful research on the Coach bags I find "in the wild" so I suspect you'll see more of me here.

I really appreciate your sharing your expertise.

It's a genuine Soho Leather Flap from 2006

You posted the instructions but didn't follow them. The Required information wasn't included in your reply. I see that you're a new poster, but in the future please be sure to include the requested information.

Thank you, and welcome to tPF. :smile:

Before this ships, can I have it authenticated? Also ID'd, if it's real? Thanks!

There's no way to authenticate it especially without a creed stamp or Coach stamp or mark of any kind. . There's nothing to even prove it's a Coach, the only thing with the Coach name is the hangtag and those can be faked or replaced.

ETA - Maybe a Carnival Bag 9925 from 1997? I need to find a listing to compare details.

EATA - If it's a Carnival Bag there should be a creed and serial number stamped inside the open front pocket. We need a photo of it.

MORE OPINIONS ARE WELCOME.

Someone reported my Kimball zip as a counterfeit and eBay removed it. Can you please verify?

What do I do next? eBay phone service isn't available due to the pandemic.

It's authentic. I don't know what you should do. Even if you email them, if there is no one there, who is going to help you?
