VINTAGE COACH HANDBAGS HAVE A VARIETY OF CREEDS, BELOW IS AN EXCERPT FROM AN GUIDE HOPEFULLY IT HELPS WITH MANY QUESTIONS CONCERNING CREEDS.
In theBEGINNING Coach bags had either a metal identifier tag, or simple impression of the Coach logo, no creed no serial #'s.
Coach introduced the creed without any serial # sometime in the late 60's/early70s.
When Coach added serial numbers to the creed in the 1970's they were "all numbers" in the format "xxx-xxxx" . The last four digits do not correspond to the style number, each bag had a unique number.
Coach ceased making bags in NYC in the mid 70's before there was such a thing as fakes or knock offs. NYC bags are vintage and rare.
This serial number format (all numbers, xxx-xxxx) is also on bags made in the United states, after Coach began manufacturing bags in multiple locations in the USA. There are a few styles with "MADE IN U.S.A" that have 8 in the serial number - all numbers, no dash, just a continuous string.
In the 1980's Coach changed the serial numbers to "all numbers" in the format xxxx-xxx. The last three numbers do not relate to the style number.
In the 1990's Coach introduced the modern registration format of letters and numbers, with the last four digits being the style number (or in the case of some of the newer bags after 2000, the last five digits). These registration numbers are not unique to each bag.
Before 1994, most serial numbers were seven numbers long and didn't give any clue to the style name of the bag. After 1994 the last half of the number was actually the style number, and the front half of the number showed where and when the item was made.
