The start of my Disney pin collection

This is the start of my Disney pin collection:



Majority are from my last trip. It was the first trip I ever did pin trading. I had a lot of fun doing it and plan to do it my next trip. I was just wanted to share my small collection. I was also wondering if any of the pins I have are "scrapers"?

it's hard to tell without seeing the pins face to face, photos are difficult to determine. I know you have some pictured that do have scrappers but I can't tell if yours are or not. Nice collection!

Those are awesome pins. Last week at Disneyland almost all the pins we found were scrappers and the same ones. I don't believe I say any of these pins.

Awesome collection!

It was funny on our last trip we didn't notice we got some scrappers from castmembers till we found the exact same oin from another cast member. What we thought looked old, yellowish, or discolored when we say the real pin it was obvious the first ones we got were fake. But I probably wouldn't have known if I didn't see them next to each other.

A scrapper is an "authorized" Disney pin. They are produced in mass numbers in china. They are basically fake pins.

From the looks of it (hard to tell because its not a close up picture) I think your Ezra HM pin is a scrapper. Does his coat color match his shirt? It's supposed to be the lighter blue like his pants.

Don't worry though lots of collectors have scrapper pins in their collections. Sadly these days they are kind of unavoidable. I, personally, have 3 or 4 in my collection because I love the pin so much and can't find real ones.
