This is indeed a very rare and unique Coach. This is the 1970s vintage Coach Handle Portfolio Model 5050. This is the wider in-depth Handle version of the Portfolio Model 5040 both of which are true legal-sized. A Coach that any professional will appreciate.
If you love the original Coach handbags, this one is a must-have for as you know, the Large Portfolios have long been discontinued. Any Portfolio in this spectacular, absolutely pristine condition today is virtually non-existent.
Please note: The Handle Portfolio Model 5050 at first appears physically the same as the much smaller, and more common Coach Slim Satchels Model numbers 9426 and the 9430. They are far different in size and both could fit inside this Model 5050. Note the dimensions.
Made of Natural Glove-Tanned Extra Thick Cowhide Leather in the elegant color of Black, this Portfolio is rich, supple, and will make a dramatic statement. The leather has a sheen and silky feel that is seldom seen on any handbag of this vintage. Perfect to carry legal documents, a large tablet, notebook computer, and your essentials.
Open the solid brass Talon Industrial top zipper and you will see a flawless compartment and the smell of clean, rich leather will also greet you with authority. It is absolutely pristine inside. There is one pocket with the creed and serial numbers: 040-5828. An original handmade New York City Coach.
Outside, there are no marks, no stains, and no worn piping. Even the loop is pristine.
The original one-sided hangtag is present in the Ball Brand chain.
This Portfolio has style, class, and no matter how you wear it, your good taste will show, simply put. A Coach that is museum-quality and investment grade, it is a genuine collectible.
You will smile with the compliments and looks this magnificent Coach will bring.
This outstanding Coach Portfolio measures 17” L x 11” H x 2” D.
