RARE Vintage Coach Musette/ Carrier Messenger-Style (Field Bag) in Black, Made in USA (Near Mint)

Re-issued by Coach, Retails for $698 (Available in Mahogany Only)

DESCRIPTION:  Hands-down the best vintage Coach we've ever offered.  Rare early classic musette/ carrier/ messenger bag in black glove-tanned cowhide.  This one technically qualifies as the "Carrier" since it's slightly larger in size and has a back pocket.  Made in USA of black glove-tanned cowhide with adjustable (removable) 2" shoulder strap, flap front with two turn-lock closures, two large front pockets and a very roomy main compartment with zippered pouch pocket, natural (unlined) interior, reinforced leather top carry handle, full-sized rear exterior pocket, solid brass hardware.  Can be worn over shoulder, crossbody, or carried by top handle.  Includes original (one-sided) "Coach Leatherware" hang tag. (Last photo shows Anne Hathaway with the smaller musette version in Love and Other Drugs.  

ABOUT:  This is a very rare and hard-to-find vintage classic Coach unisex bag that became popular with photographers, dancers, models and professionals who needed to carry lots of items with them throughout the day.  It can be used as a professional or laptop bag, travel bag, or for everyday use.  There's plenty of room for a full-sized laptop (pictured above) along with any other essentials you need.  This bag was made by hand, so each one is unique and may differ slightly.  It has been re-issued by Coach as the "Coach Originals Messenger Bag," Style: 70798 (now made in China).  

MEASUREMENTS:  Length: 17", Height: 11", Depth: 5", Strap Width: 2" at widest, Strap Drop: 18.5-21.5" 

CONDITION:  Excellent, near mint vintage condition. No flaws or blemishes that I can see--no stains, odors, tears, loose stitching, visible wear to leather/ piping/ strap.  VERY slight patina on brass hardware.  Very clean inside and out. Amazingly cared for.  This bag appears to have only been used very lightly and stored with great care.  The leather is thick and still a bit stiff.  This piece is extremely well made and should last many, many years with proper care.  From a clean, non-smoking, humidity-controlled home.  This bag has been cleaned, leather polished and conditioned with professional-quality, non-toxic leather care products and will arrive ready to wear!  

RETURNS:  Sale is final in 'as is' condition.  Please see all photos/ descriptions/ measurements and ask any questions before submitting offers.  Serious offers only, please.
