Cms having scrappers

Hmmm,
Curious, I thought that the CMs at least would have to start their shift with non-scrapper pins.....
I can understand if later in the day they end up with scrappers due to trading but in the beginning, I guess I don't understand please kindly explain - thanks! This is a great tread.

No, the CMs pick up their lanyards from the day before. There are refreshs done backstage and occassionally a manager will distribute new pins, but the CMs don't always start each day with a fresh set of pins. Sometimes they switch lanyards between each other, but that's about it.

Most CMs don't know or care ~ it would be virtually impossible to keep up with all the scrappers out there ~ I can't even!

You'd have to devote a lot of time and effort to keep yourself up to date on the scrappers ~ most CMs I meet pin trading don't really know anything about pins in general ~ let alone scrappers.
As for removing them from the lanyards very few would do that I'm sure as I haven't seen a whole lanyard scrapper free in years !

Just look for nice looking pins when trading ~ that's what I do. Pins that aren't dull or have a lot of dipped enamel.
I have bought pins off of the shelf that are dull, dipped or scratched ~ and lately they seem to be getting lower quality.

Just the other day I bought a pin set from the Downtown pin traders store and got some of the brand new hidden mickey completers that are the promo pins and one of them was absolutely dull and rough ~ and I would have bet it was a fake if I didn't open it from the package myself!
It's so crappy I don't even want to put it in my collection, lol.

Still curious as to how cfc93 or Miami Pins, are not included in your scraper seller list.They sell 12,000 pins a week at .50 to .75 cents a piece. All scrappers or counterfeits.

Pinparrot -

This post comes from pure curiosity - but I see you only have two posts to this board, and both of them are in this thread - are you - perhaps, also known as nannub and come to spy on us?

Isn't the name change just really familiar to anyone else?

Sorry if I'm totally off base here, but I told you - sheer curiosity and it did kill the cat.



Oh, and to answer your question, we only post about those we have personally dealt with, so maybe no one has purchased from those sellers to report on them.

yes, we only post info on sellers we have personally dealt with, it appears no one has used the sellers you mentioned.

your s/n is a little scary for some of us.

My sister received a second chance offer from Will, also. It was for a lot of 25 pins on cards. She lost the auction by about $2. This was probably the next minimal bid increment.

The seller I got my cake topper from:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2437802

had over 200 pins, most of them LE 300 Imagineer Badges, Concept Art Pins, etc, so I bought some and as none of them have reported scrappers as of yet, when I get them and they are good, maybe we can put him on the good list since he is not listed either way

Newbie here! I too purchased a pin lot from ebay a couple of months ago. I thought that I was getting a great deal for our first trip to WDW. I first read about scrappers 2 nights ago. So I went to dizpins/scrappers, and lo and behold, 28 of the 40 that I purchased were on that page! Then I came to the dis, to find a solution. So I read this entire thread and decided that while the probable scrappers are cute, I'll let my kids keep them, but not trade them. I will purchase a few from dis recommended sellers and let the kids trade those. But I wanted to appreciate all of the experienced collectors for all of their input, lionqueen, surfergirl, pixiewings et al. You all prevented me from circulating pins that are of questionable origin. I don't feel right posting the seller's name because I don't know enough about pin trading to be certain that I received scrappers. But I would advise anyone to print off the ebay picture and go to dizpins/scrapper before you purchase a pin lot. I realize that won't necessarily prevent purchases of scrappers, but it would have in my case and will if you are about to buy from this seller. Sorry such a long post!
