This is a vintage Coach that exudes a quality that is hard to find today. This is the original late 1970s Avenue Bag Model 9886, made from the thickest Black leather to be found. The Avenue is a Small Brief that is a show of your success and it will do it hands down. From a private collection, this Avenue is absolutely pristine.
When you first hold this Avenue in your hands, the extreme shine of the Coal Black leather is there. Then, the sheer thickness of the fine leather, followed by that smell of the leather. This is a Coach like no other.
Pull the mirror-polished, machined knob to see the double lined leather flap and inside, the spotless clean Black suede interior. There is a floating zippered security pocket with the creed and serial numbers: 019-7146 just below. Not one mark or stain and it is odor-free.
Up front under the flap is a full-length slip pocket and on the back is one as well with both also clean as new. The Bel-Aire handle is smooth and comfortable to hold. The strap is attached to the underside of the flap and it can be removed and stowed inside to carry this fine Coach as a Briefcase and it will make a fine one at that. Perfect to carry a small notebook or a large tablet, it will make a stunning presentation and protect your devices, too.
The original one-sided hand tag is present on the solid brass Ball Brand chain.
The leathers are simply remarkable all over. Seldom do you ever see leather so rich; you can see the wrinkles and that gleaming shine. It will make such an impression, you will smile. All of the piping is perfect and all of the stitches are tight. Without a doubt, this is an outstanding Coach that you will never regret it when you see and feel this collectible.
It measures in at 12” L x 8”H x 2 ½ “D and the strap adjusts up to 48” long. Easily carried cross-body.
