Sometimes the pins from the booster sets are smaller, not always. Small example, http://pinpics.com/cgi-bin/pin.cgi?p...878.1322071951. Large example, http://pinpics.com/cgi-bin/pin.cgi?p...889.1322072033. Regardless, the pins are still tradeable.

I recently purchased from the disney.crazy seller on ebay and had a great transaction. I did order a second set of pins and so did a friend so I will report back after those 2 sets arrive.

How do these sellers look? I'm skeptical - but the first claims to have all real pins and no scrappers.
real.disney.pins

The other one has one bad feedback - but doesn't seem like a buyer from China.

real.disney.pins looks like a new seller, but the name seems familiar to me. Maybe, spelled differently. And the familiarity gives me a bad feeling. Some of northbay's pins listed are know to be scrapped, tradable and little bags raises red flags. In addition, this seller has one negative feedback regarding fake pins.

Well, I took a chance and ordered the pins. I received the ones from real.disney.pins . It was a fairly large lot. They all arrived in individual zipped plastic bags. I'm in the process of sorting through them now. If I check on pin pics and dizpins and they seem to match the pins pictured there (in color and design - and all the info on the back matches) - does that mean they are likely legit? I know there is no 100% guaranteed way to tell - but is that relatively safe? I just don't entirely know what to be looking even, even after reviewing the scrapper into. Thanks

Pinpics will give you a scrapper alert in their information. Meaning a scrapper pin exists in that pin style. Here is an example. http://pinpics.com/cgi-bin/pin.cgi?p....1323367170.v2 Hidden Mickey pins are often copied and very hard to tell from Disney's legit pins. Back stamps are often very similar to Disney's authentic pins. Here is a list of pins from dizpins that shows known scrapper pins.
http://www.dizpins.com/pinventory/scrappers.htm
What you have purchased may or may not be authentic, especially if you have any of the pins shown in the dizpin information. The waffle pattern, on the back of a pin, is easier to identify autheticity.

Just ordered 3 pins on Amazon.com from seller "Small But Sincere Gifts & Collectibles" I had a free $20 gift card from ordering Santa Pix this year, so I thought I would secretly pick up some pins and surprise my 9yoDD throughout our trip with "pixie dust"! The pins were approximately $6 each so I am hoping they are NOT fakes.

If you get pins from ebay and once you get them find out that they are scrappers, is it wrong to contact the seller and ask for a refund? I feel like it would be false advertising/ product not as described. Just curious as to WWYD?

I have contacted every seller that I purchased pins from. I try to avoid scrappers, but I'm still new to this. I purchased from 3 different sellers. One seller credited my account for the pins (there were 2 scrappers in the lot of 16) so I was refunded price per pin. Another seller is going to send me extra pins to make up for the few scrappers. The last seller asked me for information about how to identify scrappers - so hopefully they will know for next time and they are refunding my money.

I've had a neutral experience with hawaiiandreamcastle. When one of the pins broke before she shipped them to me, she notified me that she could replace it with another pin and would toss in two extra pins for free. Though, when I got a lot of pins from her, several were scrappers. After that experience, probably won't buy from her again.

domimgood maybe not red list?

I just bought a lot from domimgood and the pins are received seem to be 100% authentic. No paint dimples, no incorrect waffling, everything seemed crisp and clear. I didn't notice they were on the red list until today when I bought from a new seller who I seem to have many scrappers from. But domimgood seems to be a good seller. Just my opinion. Are there any sellers who sell large lots who are authentically good sellers consistently?

I would double check, all the ones I got from him were scrappers. I got a lot with wrong edition numbers and some were even plastic. Go on dizpins, http://www.dizpins.com/pinventory/scrappers.htm and pinpics and compare.

Domimgood sells all fake pins..
read his negative comments...
http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAP...s=negative_365
he needs to stay on the red list.
most of his pins are fake.
also read the way he responds to feedback...very classy.
lol
as for good sellers selling continuous large lots of pins for cheap prices..
there is no such thing as it is impossible to do.
you will get good sellers occasionally selling larger lots to clear out inventory..
but..on a regular basis?
no...not for under 2 bucks or so a pin..
because...
they cannot.
