Item: Coach Shoulder Red Leather Purse
Listing number: 130021378
Seller and site where listed: Goodwill
Link: https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Item/130021378
Comments: I'm pretty sure that this is fake but I wanted to confirm that before I report it. The creed is blurry but there appears to be mis-spellings in the words!
Those pictures are awful! I can't even really tell the style of bag other than that it's a tote.

The hang tag is fake and the dust bag is fake.

I can't see the full creed but I believe that the bag may be okay.

If you can get them to send a picture of the full creed and serial number and possibly the bag standing upright, that would help. (The bag picture isn't necessary (for me) though for buyers, it's certainly useful!
Thanks, I will ask for better pictures!
I'm no expert, however, I do spend a LOT of time looking at coach purses on the internet (and in my space). That purse on Shopgoodwill looks a lot like this one: 12343. PS: I've bought several things from this seller (it's my local area) and everything has been legit and beautiful.

It IS 12343. I can see that on the creed photo on shop goodwill.
Knowing what the style number is in the Goodwill listing helps me confirm that the bag you asked about @katev is authentic. (I can see enough of it now too.)

Thanks @ConnieinSeattle for posting the picture.

It's authentic, made in 1996. (I don't know what "leather lube" is but I hope it's not greasy.)

Thank you so much BeenBurned. I am going to dunk it.

Ugh, I didn't see that! I have been looking for this bag for a while and hit buy so fast lol. Oh well at least the bag is authentic. That's all that matters the most. I don't mind cleaning it up.

I'm not an expert but can I chime in? There's something definitely off about this creed.

The bag is an authentic Sonoma medium bucket zip.

Sonomas often have wonky (and sloppy) creeds, stitching and stamping. The wrinkling might be the result of having been washed.

But again, the bag is fine.
