I purchased some pins from pinpointe. 8 of them have the mickey heads stamped in the back and only one of them the pattern goes off the edgs. the others have the lip. 2 of those have some very rough edges. I have contacted the seller and are awaiting his/her reply.

My 4 12-pin Grab Bags from sleepys_emporium was amazing! I got 4 WDI pins, and I believe that all of them are real (maybe not the badge it's not glossy). I'll post pics of the lot later. Anyways, about 12 were fakes, but that is obviously going to happen because of the polluted system now. I would highly suggest them!

And some of the pins are really hard to tell if they are scrappers.....
On my eBay page I say that I try really hard not to sell scrappers but that some might slip through because some are so well done.

the seller emailed me and apologized if some scrappers got through. said i could either get a refund or she would replace the pins. very good to deal with and quick to respond to emails. could tell she was concerned about sending possible scrappers to her buyers.

the first pins that I ordered from ebay arrived today the ones from fox_trading_co. I'm not sure about scrappers but I got six pins and the front of one is scratched and the point on the back of another is slightly bent downwards and on another the colour is wrong on the shirt according to pinpics andthe mickey's embossed on another doesn't look quite right... I'm not sure of scrappers but I'd say these could be... I like the pins eitherways!

Has anyone done business with ebay seller: chadcass3? Has 100% positive feedback for 3384 transactions. I'm considering buying a 25 lot from him or her. Any feedback would be appreciated. TIA.

I never pay attention to feedback, the mass populace does not even know about scrappers, or if they do they are too afraid to leave negative feedback. And I have not dealt with him, but he looks a little iffy. I notice a few pins I have recently received scrappers of, but they could be legit too.

gold747: Obvious scrapper. The post is bent 45° to the left. Low LE, and LE identification font and the font of the year inside of the ODPT logo aren't correct.
Updates and new reviews:

claribella76: I bought a 50 grab bag, and honestly, I received about 50% scrappers. Not a bad turnout, actually. Luckily, I liked all of her pins, so I kept the scrappers. Probably orange.

realfastpins: NOT REAL FAST!!!! Still haven't received my two pins after 2 weeks of waiting. Probably scrappers anyways.

travelinwynns: SCRAPPER! I only bought one pin, but already on red list. He kept telling me that he traded his pins with cast members, but I don't buy it. Did refund my money though. SAME AS EZPINNER, SHE IS HIS WIFE.

ezpinner: Read above.

jeffreyyoung: Scrapper. Only two pins though, so really can't make a call.

sunshinesunwear: Scrapper, but refunded money no questions asked. They said that they will "investigate the issue further".

flobtech: She is selling pins to offset the cost of surgery. Received one scrapper, but I believe she is trying to sell real pins. It was a lot of 3 frisbee-themed pins. They are from her personal collection, so I don't doubt the pins, and I am completely happy.

I have updated the list before this post, and tomorrow I'll update it with this post. Also, I'll edit this post with the responses from the sellers when I emailed them.

Hello all. I'm stumbling on this thread late. I collect pins but only ones that I love or that have meaning to me so I don't trade. It never occured to me that people qould and could put out fakes. Yep, babe in the woods I know. I tend to pay a lot more for the pins I get since A I buy when I'm at WDW and then I buy what I like on eBay or wherever. But I've got my eye on a few pins that are about $20 a piece and the thought of them possibly being scrappers freaks me out. I worry about feedback numbers less than a thousand with these people because I worry about them having been closed under another name and starting up again ya know? What is the best way to arm one's self going into a purchase like that? (I'm still reading this thread but it's HUGE so I'm starting w/ recent and going backwards. I'm sure this has been answered, I'm just not there yet) THNK YOU for your patience w/ me.

Well research whether the pin you are looking for has been scrapped or not....also check their return policy. If they will take the pin back then maybe go for it. Another thing to do is check other pins they have up, research if they are scrapped or not and make a decision using that information. Finally trust your gut instinct, if it feels off it probably is.

THANKS much! Of course, the first post in this thread is pretty helpful. I get so easily overwhelmed. Sometimes I just need info distilled or I'll go on overload. It stinks to be losing one's mental faculties at 40.

here's a little spot the possible scrapper question for those of you that know more about them than me.. I got another three pins today.. One I believe is genuine the other two I question. Basically had all three of the pins already but wanted some to trade in parks so got doubles so I wouldn't be tempted to keep them but then:

Both have gold backs, The darker pluto has waffle design with pin trading 2002 mickey head and @ disney made in chine in box underneath on back
The yellow one has plain gold back with pin trading 2008 and @disney china in box underneath...
Both actually have glossy finish and no rough edges or anything... Is one of them a scrapper or possibly just a different later version of similar pin?


Colour isn't 100% on that pic from the scanner but you can see one is a brighter shade of pink than the other.
The darker pin is slight rougher at the bottom and for some reason looks bigger even though they are same size face to face.
On back both are silver with same info Hidden mickey pin 1 of 5 in rectangle, mickey head pin trading 2008 underneath and beside that rectangle with @disney china
Only difference I see is rectangle with disney appears slightly longer on darker pin.
Brighter pink also has slight dips in the face that can only be noticed holding the pin at a certain angle

So are any of those scrappers do you think?
