The Sheridan Collection from Coach were the premium, most expensive from the Coach line of exclusive handbags. Not many were made and each was handcrafted from imported leather. The leathers were given a special perpetual treatment, which would afford any handbag chosen by Coach for this process to maintain the new look far beyond a normally tanned leather handbag. None are exactly the same. Being hand-made, each will have its own uniqueness typical with custom craftsmanship. The quality of this Sheridan Briefcase far exceeds many of the best today.
This magnificent example from the Sheridan Collection is the Sumter Brief Model 5268 and it is simply stunning. It is in the very rare colors of Navy and Mahogany Trim, in the Spectator style. These were the most expensive of the Sheridan Collection and still today, to own one of these is a true symbol of your success.
It is a Coach that any executive, doctor, attorney, or professional would appreciate.
This stunning treasure is pristine and from a private collection. Look closely at the pictures and you can see just how elegant this rare Coach is.
Open the brushed and coated solid brass special turn-lock and you are first greeted with matching pebble leather under the flap then, you will see flawless, shimmering bronze Faille lining. This is a very large, spacious Coach that can carry up to a sixteen-inch laptop with the peripherals, your documents, and your essentials with room to spare.
The full-length front compartment can carry the largest tablet with ease and with quick access. The main compartment is Faille lined and flawless as well. There is a single zippered security pocket with the creed and serial numbers: 0585-399 below. One of the highly desired U.S. models. The creed is on matching Mahogany leather.
On the outside, there is another full-length pocket on the back and even that pocket has the Faille lining. The holders for the strap intricately crafted from leather that is an eighth of an inch thick. At the top, is a Bel-Aire handle to hand carry this Coach.
The strap itself is of the same thickness. It is supple, spotless clean with no dullness and is attached by two, gleaming leash clips. As you look at the pictures, you can see the shine from the edging. The piping is intact and is clean throughout. The turn-lock even has a pad to protect the pebble leather.
The original hang-tag is present on the brass chain. The hang-tags found on the Sheridan’s are also perpetually treated. Their hang-tags are larger than regular Coach hang-tags and is made from the same leather. For a Sheridan to be complete, it must match the trim.
This is a Coach that is very hard to find in this condition and is a genuine collectible. This Sumter shows only the best care. The leathers are soft with superb form, and even in color. The piping as seen in the pictures is even and smooth.
You will love this fine Coach Sheridan Sumter.
