Jen, to tell the difference between pro pins and the regular Disney pins rub your finger over both of them, they Disney pin will be slightly bumpy, the pro pin will be smooth. Also look at the backs, the pro pins don't have anything on the back except the Disney copyright, the ODTP (official disney trading pins) will have a stamp on the back that says they are ODTP.

I would have to get my neighbors pins to check the top. They do feel smooth but at the sametime you can feel where there is any sliver or gold on the front as for the backs I only have one that has only the trade mark on it. The rest have a trade mark and the ODTP symbol. Some even say # whatever of # whatever. I think I got lucky with mouse pins.

I have used OliveJuiceyou21 multiple times and have had great experiences every single time. They communicate very well and all the pins I got from them were authentic and came in the original packaging like the ones I bought from the parks last year. One time I even won a bid on a pin that I forgot I already had, sent an email as soon as I could and he/she traded it out for me no problem. They ship really fast also. Anytime I want pins I always use them!!!!

Hi -- just found this thread. We are heading to Disney in a month -- my 13 yr old DD is bringing a friend, and they've suddenly decided they are too old for autographs, they want to trade pins. They will have zero interest in these pins after the experience, and neither of them has much spending money saved up to really get into it.

Is there a thread on which legitimate sellers have pin lots which are "legal" for trading, at the cheapest prices? I tried searching, but the search engine doesn't seem to be working.

Again, not at all interested in collectibles, only in helping them amass a lot to trade when we get there.

This thread would be a good start. Find the green sellers and buy from them. Dis board members have found them to be selling authentic pins for great prices.

As far as just being 'legal', Disney will accept any metal pins that have the Disney copyright on the back. The problem is that there are fake pins out there that have the copyright but are not authentic.

I encourage you to purchase from the sellers in the first post. That way, you won't be inadvertently bringing scrapper/fake pins into the parks!
Mousepinsonline has big lots for cheap. Maybe you can start there.

You can compare the ones you got from MP. Just find the ones that have the ODPT symbol and ones that just have a copyright, the ODPT pins are the "good" ones, the others will be the pro pins, you can also pop onto MP again and click thru their inventory to see what is what. off to the right of the home page is a link to click that says "pro pins", just click and you can see the Propins they have listed. Any of the ones that say CL/HM pins are ODPT pins. HTH!

Thanks. I checked and I think I only got 1 propin. Which is really good. He was great. I sent him my paypal email address yesterday and my credit of just over $10 was there for the 6 pins that had some damage to them. I would buy from him again.

I even went to the closest Disney store today which by the way took an hour to get to only to find out that they haven't carried trading pins in over a year. I was so sad but did get some great deals on there summer stuff.

Hi everyone! Just thought I would add my list of sellers on e-bay that I have purchased from and from what I can see, all look like authentic pins. In addition, shipping was fast, cost was reasonable and communication with the sellers was great.

- Olivejuiceyou21
- Domdisneypin
- Disneypalace
- Beekerlg
- Thewill
- Hobbystopnow
- Massdisneyfreak

Of these sellers, I have purchased the most from Olivejuiceyou21, Domdisneypin, Thewill, Disneypalace and Massdisneyfreak.

Compared to my pins that were purchased in WDW directly and after looking them up on pinpics, I am confident that they are authentic Disney pins and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from these sellers again (in fact, I'm looking at some pins right now )

I have to go right now, but I will add them to the list by tomorrow. Thank you!

So tonight wasn't such a good night and I couldn't sleep because of some problems with a neighbor. I started looking on ebay and found some possible sellers selling scrappers. I made a list and also included some of the feedback that I could find.

Remember I haven't dealt with thess people just what I could tell from ebay. Also sorry if some of the names have already been listed.


tradepinsforyou

Hightly Questionable Pins Lots of Deep Depressions Color Inconsistencies etc

trifing

BEWARE the pins I received had numerous counterfeit "scrapper" pins in the lot
Half the order was dup, post where loose on a few pins, items where misleading

jackaroopintraders

thinkerbelle102 (this one had 28 negative in the past 12 months)
11 out of 60 were the same pin. Very Very slow in receiving. Poor Service
4 counterfeit pins. Would not replace. Offered refund but shipping $ > pin value
Item Counterfeit...Returned to Seller...Money refunded
BEWARE - MOST IF NOT ALL PINS ARE FAKES FROM CHINA< NOT REAL PINS!!!!!

I looked at Thinkerbelles FB once and decided it wasn't worth it to try. I do think that person is selling scrappers, the others I have no experience with either. Thanks for doing some research, sorry you're having neighbor issues.

Thanks Kerri. I am sure I will do more looking tonight. I am still bothered by my neighbor. Looking at the pins help me not think about it.
