Hi friends! I’ve spent a lot of time googling and I just can’t seem to find this particular bag anywhere. The leather feels correct, the hardware looks correct, the creed looks pretty much correct, so I think it’s legit. Any help is appreciated! ❤

Tote Bag
Navy (I think. Definitely not black, but could be dark grey)
Serial: No 0245-915
Comments: the front has three exterior pockets, but the back has none.
It's authentic but I don't know the style.

Hi Authenticators!
Will you please look at this bag? I'm going to sell it wanted to know whether they are authentic.

Item: Two Helen's Legacy Bag 9953
Where obtained: thrift shop/ consignment
Comments: for the brown one, if you can also guesstimate what color it is, that'll be helpful! It's milk chocolate color. Not clear brown. I also attached color comparison with typical dark brown bag below.

Hi, I got this bag from a relative, it seems to be the Bridle Zip model? I was given a dustbag, an unused product registration card and a Bridle collection leaflet/card (last picture). Not sure if the dustbag is a replacement dustbag or the one that the bag came with initially. One thing to note (if it's relevant), the metal tag is quite heavy. I tried to capture the bag from different angles, please let me know if there's any detail missing. The creed reads F9E-6712

It's authentic, made in 1999. I don't see a problem with the hangtag.

Apologies, I hope it's okay to post again. I was just sorting out my things and found this bag I bought secondhand about 5 or 6 years ago from someone who was retiring and selling out their work wardrobe. I found the creed very difficult to read so I tried different photo angles, the code seems to be J1126-18962, googling brings up model name "Chelsea Leather Stripe Charlie". The creed being difficult to read and the fact that there's a little tag inside that says "Made in China" made me somewhat suspicious. The hangtag only says "Coach" on one side, the other side has nothing on it.

Hi. I’m in a store right now looking at what appears to be a scooter. This is the creed. I’ve never seen a letter in a pre serial made in the United States bag before. Legit?
Sorry pre style numbers.
I’m seeing “C”.
It does look like a C but it's a "0" zero. It's probably fine but without seeing the rest of the bag, we can't be certain.
Okay. Thanks. It’s in fabulous condition. I’ll take the chance and report back in a bit.
Definitely a zero
Good morning lovely authenticators. Could you please have a look. 2.5” x 5.5”x 7.5”. Put my glasses on, brought it into the daylight and yes, I can see now that the first digit is indeed a zero :smile:
It’s fine. Nice find.
