Some of the ebay sellers are now showing photos of the back of the pin. Also, I wondering if the flood of scrappers is bringing the price down on the identical legit pins. For example, the holiday vinylmations. What do others think?

That was one of the big problems, trying to find a table..the "regulars" staked out their tables as if they had a deed in their pocket for it. When we walked by I always said to my husband that Disney should send them 1099 forms to submit with their taxes since they are making their living on Disney property...I had also heard they were going to start scheduling weekly pin meets to compensate...that should be a lot better...we will see.

I totally agree. I was all set to buy the boxed LE 500 set being released 11/26...well, I have sitting on my computer table 3 scrappers that already have hit the park from this set...guess I won't be purchasing it.

I had 2 pins listed a couple weeks ago, had a couple of watchers but no bidders. I posted photos of the backs of my pins when I listed them, well on one of them I did. It's really really hard to get good photos of those backs....the light just reflects off of them horribly.

Are you sure your pins from dzneypins are good? I ask because I just purchased pins from dzneypins and I believe they are fake. I hope I'm wrong, but they are much thinner than any of the other pins we have collected from trading at the parks over the years. They have a silver edge to them, instead of a gold edge like our other pins, and even my DD8 thought they felt cheap (or thin) to her.

Like I said, I sure hope I am wrong about this, I am a rookie and really don't know much about fake pins yet, but it sure seems like these are fakes. I'm hoping someone replies to my other thread with some way of telling for sure.

dzneypins is selling pins for $1.15 a pin, and the stock photo has at least one scrapper in it. This is exactly the type of seller I have been warning people about, doesnt matter if you get real or fake in your order, theyre source material is scrapper.

Thanks for your reply, I will contact them today and see about rectifying the situation. Perhaps dzneypins should lose their GREEN rating on the first page of this thread, as that was the reason I decided to go ahead and buy from them. Hopefully we can keep other rookies like myself from making the same mistake...

EDITED:

I am editing my comments regarding the ebay pin seller named dzneypins. The fact is, I am new to the pin trading and am a bit overwhelmed by it all to be honest with you. I feel I am simply not qualified to say officially that someone is dealing in scrappers.

I received a couple of PM's telling me they think that dzneypins may perhaps be legit, if that is true then I definitely hit the deal of the day buying pins from dzneypins at less than 1.20 per pin. However, it is wrong to accuse someone of selling scrappers based solely on their low price, in my opinion.

Ultimately, my kids love the pins, and if they are scrappers then they must be pretty good ones. And bottom line, like I said above, I am simply not qualified to say either way.

Please forgive my accusations, and ignorance.

I just got my pin lot from retiredreadingspecialist in the mail yesterday. It was a real pleasure doing business with her. She dropped me a personal note when she received the order and also when it was shipped. While she was packing my pins she noticed that there was a duplicate common pin so she included an extra LE pin. Of the 41 pins, the Chip & Dale "Aloha" pin probably is because it says "Hidden mickey pin" with the lower case "m" and "p" on the back and Pinpics said that was an indication of a problem pin. That one was my "keeper" out of the lot anyway! Another pin, a Buzz Lightyear pin, felt a lit light. I am NO expert, but the rest of the pins the pins looked perfectly OK to me, including the Aloha pin. The color was fine, the back was fine, the weight and feel was fine and the paint job was fine. In all, I think I got a pretty good lot of traders at a great price.

Mt Nittany is the only person who can make changes to the thread, I'm sure as soon as possible she will update dznypins status.

I'm sure all his Limited Edition pins are 100% real...he never paid a dime for any of them, just traded some crap pins to novice traders who in turn bought the LE pins for him at DTD....now if your looking at his lots, I say they are all scrappers. He had a big mouth at one point and bragged to all the other traders he was buying 5,000 pieces from China at a time. But, a while back I ran into him and his whole tribe of kids at HS trading obvious scrappers for other pins..so who really knows...all I can say I wouldn't

How can he possibly trade that many scrappers for that many real pins at Disney ?
Just the fact that he's selling 1000 pins at a time shocks me!
Does anyone buy those?!? .80 each ? How much does he pay!
