I got this one several years ago on eBay. I do not want to throw it. The color looks a bit of dark brown but in real life is like a mahogany shade. I have my doubts before the authenticity because it has no serial number but I was informed that Coach had the itch of pasting the creed number in a once upon a time. I was thinking of dye it in a different color and get the straps in that same shade cause they are pretty bad... maybe black, a bolder color or try it on the same shade. I do not know how the process of rehab works so please enlighten me!
