Photos my own.
Last time I missed out on another bag so decided to take a chance.
Think it's OK but I always like to get the experts opinions.

Thank you.View attachment 6016564View attachment 6016565View attachment 6016566View attachment 6016567

Hi, I found this green Station bag on an online platform in Japan. However, the font for the word "COACH" and the numbers look suspicious. Just now, I read on the Internet that the font was stamped differently for the Station bag that has 2nd set of serial numbers starting with 4. Is this real or fake? Thank you so much!

I believe it is authentic. I never heard anything about the 2nd set of numbers starting with a 4 but I've seen that font for the numbers before, and I just realized that nearly all the examples I have are station bags and do start with a 4 in the second set of numbers, and they are all in the format xxxx xxx. I have one more with the same font that doesn't start with a 4 in the second set of numbers and isn't a station bag.

I'm not seeing a problem with the font for the word Coach.
 
Hello lovely people, I'm really excited. I've found more of what may be real gems from the mid to late 1970s. If only they're authentic of course. Can I please get your help to authenticate these 2?

Thank you very very much in advance :smile:

1) Bonnie Cashin basic bag?

Site: Carousell


2) Bonnie Cashin clutch??

Site: Carousell

They are both authentic. Neither of them are Bonnie Cashin. Both were made in the early 80s. The first is a basic bag and the second appears to be a slim clutch large #9555.
 
Bought this gorgeous briefcase. Please give me more info. From Japan.Valuable?

Please authenticate this. Bought from Japan.
You've shown the same bag in both posts and each post has a different creed shown.

Please read the yellow highlighted post at the top of each page of the thread for the information and pictures we need.

Thank you so much for your time. I felt suspicious about the font after comparing it with other Station bags from other sellers. So since different font is not clearly meant to be fake, I decided to buy the bag ASAP :smile:

I apologize if I’m doing this wrong I just took really quick impulsive photos at my local goodwill. It’s a coach purse in a case and I was hoping to get it identified but I understand it that’s not possible considering the situation. I just saw it quickly and grabbed the photos I could since I couldn’t get it out of the case. But it’s a coach purse black with silver hardware maybe 10inches across 8 inches high.
Thank you for any info!

We can't authenticate it without clear pictures of the creed stamp and serial number from inside the bag, sorry. But we DO NOT recommend buying any "Coach" bag where those details are supposed to be present - not all Coaches have them! - but are not made easily visible to the potential buyer.

Goodwill has a very poor record of trying to determine if name-brand items are authentic and they often make the situation worse by depending on poorly set-up Authentication services that sometimes, like a well-advertised service whose name starts with "En..." couldn't authenticate a Coach correctly in many cases because they depend on AI and pay absolutely NO attention to much more important details such as serial numbers, fonts used in the stampings, and basic facts that the most accurate HUMAN authenticators use, such as fonts, production dates and plant locations as well as those very important creed and serial stamps.

There probably are hundreds of thousands of fake "Coaches" in circulation, going back as far as 40 years or even more. Don't take any chances of getting stuck with one.
