Hey, I'm the young trader who posted on IlovemythreeC's account (mom), I went ahead and made my own . I recently bought a lot from sunshinesunwear and had a good transiaction.But, a got some low LE's which leads me to think their scrappers. When I sent her a question about it, she kinda avoided the question. I'd put her/him on the questionable list.

Sorry to hear about the bad experience, had a couple myself. I was fortunate to receive a refund by nicely asking for it. They will probably want the product back before they do so.....
You're right about the low le pins, the lower the LE the pin the more statistically improbable that the pins are real especially if you receive more than one of the same LE in the lot.

That's why when I buy LE's now, I make sure I buy ones still on the cards, so I can match the UPC with what PinPics has on file.

Yeah, definetly lower the LE, the better chance it's a scrapper. Broncobilly,that really is a great idea about buying the one's on the cards, something to remember.

Collecting pins for personal enjoyment

I can't really get to Disneyland all that easily.....but I love the pins for their own sake, and just collecting nice ones. I too am concerned about scrappers especially since I am looking at these as kind of an investment to pass on to be grandson someday....so I am trying to be REAL careful on ebay about what I buy. Everybody's tips have been really helpful. Does anyone have an idea about a legit seller who deals with pins people just want to collect rather than trade?

BizzyBee1 is the best I've found. He has SO many wonderful pins and they always come on the cards. He's a great seller of really nice newer and older pins still on cards

So far, in my experience, I would have to say thewill because all his pins come on the backs and can be easily authenticated.

some sellers sell scrappers for less than $1 per pin but some of your legit sellers are selling their pins for $0.01 too and with combined shipping they could be as low as $0.51 each for pins marked with the official trading pin logo and on card backs....so how are the legit sellers getting pins so cheap when they are at least $7 in the parks?
They probably list their pins at $.99, expecting them to be bid up. There are lower listing fees as well for lower starting prices.

That's a great idea! I'd still check the coloration/quality/quality of backstamp to make sure that they are legit.

I am new to this. Can someone tell me more what pins should look like on the back? Does having the "copyright Disney" (the c in the circle) make it official or is that on the counterfeit ones also?

I have some pins with engraved mickey heads on the back, is that good or bad or should it be on all of them?

I keep reading about this "border" on the back that is a dead giveaway, but with no real description or picture.

I have looked at pinpics but it only describes the front. Would like to know more about the back of pins.

Thanks!

I buy most of mine from MUBUNNY and I just saw he listed a few lots of 20 on ebay. Normally I bid on lots of 5 from him but sometimes I buy larger lots by emailing him and asking if he has any. The pins have all been legit pins.

When they are talking about borders, they are talking about how close the mickey heads on the back come to the edge of the pin. The mickey heads should be close together not spread out with the pin having little and better yet no border at all. The mickey heads will be cut off partially and not complete as they come to the edge of the pin.
Hope this helps a little.
