Rare Coach Leatherware Swag Bag Distressed Leather Satchel Briefcase 70s NYC


This vintage bag is coined the Swag Bag and was made by Coach Leatherware, most likely in the early 1970s. In production for only a few years, these bags are extremely rare and hard to find nowadays. Made from tan saddle leather, there are two open pockets under the top flap, an unlined interior and one large flat open pocket inside. One can carry using the top handle, or via a shoulder strap (two included with this sale - more details below). In good condition for its 40+ years of age, this bag has clearly been well-used and loved. The exterior leather is distressed and patina'd: the top flap is darker than the remainder of the body, and there are several light pen strikes and rubs to the leather. The interior shows repairs in two places on the leather trim beading (see image 8), two ink spots and some white spots to the interior bottom (image 10). The original carry strap is included but as you'll see in image 9, it shows fraying to the trim and is dry, so we're also throwing in a newer Coach shoulder strap in a darker brown color. It measures 15in long x 11in high x 5in deep. Stamped COACH LEATHERWARE MADE IN NEW YORK CITY. No creed number as this bag was made before Coach used registration and style codes.
