When you do a search on pin pics it will pull up a photo of the pin, scroll down and it gives details, there will be notes added by users of known scrapper "tells". There aren't always details, these notes are added by users. I've received scrappers of pins and not seen any notes on pinpics.

I have been getting quite a few PM's so I thought I would list my ebay ID here (if that's ok, I think it is). My ebay ID is "coloradodisneylover" take a look if you want. After a few weeks, maybe I can earn my way onto the "green list"
Awesome!!!! I will definitely be looking!

I have seen that seller and assume they are selling scrappers due to the size of the lots.

THanks!
If he is not listed no one has purchased from him, but I looked and personally I would avoid him. His auctions smell of scrappers......

Anyway, I wanted to give people on the DIS and this thread first "crack". I will be listing them today (hopefully) and will NOT be taking individual pictures as it would literally take me days (see, there are legit pin lot sellers on ebay that have reasons for not taking individual pictures )

I can assure anyone interested that they are ALL authentic, not a scrapper in the bunch. Those who have read my posts on this topic would see my passion about this subject

I am selling them for $2.50 each. I usually don't keep starter sets, so I highly doubt there are any of those in there, but can't be positive I don't have 1 or 2. I don't keep cuties or promo pins, nothing like that. They are all authentic and likely 3-5 years old so there could be some highly sought after ones in there as well.

I will be selling them in groups of 20, and shipping flat rate USPS Priority mail. If you're interested, PM me and I will give you my ebay ID (100% feedback )

Hope everyone had a Happy thanksgiving!!
I just saw your ebay listings, and they look great (but I'm not an expert). I may buy one of your lots soon.

I had a good experience with a seller on ebay called disneypinpros. I won an auction for the red mickey head completer pin. I did my research and paid for the item. The seller refunded my money, due to the fact that he thought it was a scrapper. He found this out and sent a note that he won't sell scrapper pins. He also has a 30 day return policy. I appreciated his honesty.

So glad I found this post... we are headed to Disney beginning of Feb and I wanted to get the kids some pins as part of their surprise. I have many myself, I bought mine all in the parks (DH likes to say I have a small fortune around my neck - LOL) but I don't let the kids do anything with my pins... I know, selfish mom. I picked out each one because they were special to me.

I wanted to get them a couple each on ebay... now off to search to make sure I get them legitimate pins...

Hi all,
Just wanted to report that we are officially UNDER one week until Christmas @ WDW
Sorry, just had to share my excitement
I will be trading pins (of course) and will update you on the scrappers I see. We trade everywhere so I will report back as best I can!

I got some pins from TotalJohn, they all look very good!! I also bought some from a lady on Dizpins, she sent me 50 nice pins (a couple may be scrappers but I really can't tell, more research needed) for $1.60 a pin!! So far so good.

So we have figured out who in EBAY sells scrappers but how do we determine that the scrapper traders have not made it to the CM before us to trade scraps for authentics??

We trade alot of pins on our vacations . But I read this post before my last trip over Thanksgiving and thought while I was in the park........"Am I supposed to ask to see the back of the pin and examine it before I make my trade???"

What are some strategies to avoid scrappers on CM lanyards because lets be real, most CMs that I have traded with only look for the logo B4 placing it on their lanyard and going about their day. And yes on occasion, they have told me they flag obvious scrappers.

Does Disney have a nightly "Scrapper Finder" checking CM lanyards????????

MousePinsOnline -Another positive experience

Late last week I purchased 4-25 packs from their recent pin special and received them yesterday. Great pins, CL, HM, LE, Lanyard and regular traders all included. Great selection overall. I will definately purchase from them again.

Yes, one for the moment. How do you know when a new pin is comming out? Is there a site or location I need to keep and eye on?

I often forget to look and then find out that I missed something cool while at the park.
