A few scrappers will be let through due to the high quantity they sell... They offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee, and I see in one of your later posts that you got a refund for the 4 scrappers you found.

is this too good be true? If so, I don't really care, I loved the pins I got so there's no plan on trading them anyway... just curious, I've heard great things about them but the last post has me thinking I'm blinded by the shiny goodness lol.

Okay, I'm editing this because I found 1 pin... I don't think it's a scrapper, but I think it was poorly stored by a previous owner. It looks some child was bored and "carved" a small, very light square on the front of the pin(it really had to be manually done, not an error, it has that "carving words in my school desk" style)
That's great! I think they possibly could be 100% real. There's always a possibility that you found a few really good looking scrappers, so you can hardly tell the difference.

Anyway went to dizpins not wanted listed and top 10 list and did not see a single pin that I received from either seller. So my question is should I assume these pins are all good or bad, I can't tell the difference from the ones I bought on ebay and the ones my grandson has purchased at WDW. Leaving Monday the 19th for WDW and don't kow what to do.
Even some of the scrapper pins are not listed on dizpins and pinpics. There are so many scrapped pins that they can't keep up.

Have fun in Disney tomorrow!

Any pin that is made has a possibility of being scrapped. Most of the pins they decide to scrap, though, are simple pins without any extra elements (pin on pin, slider, spinner, flocked, etc) but they do scrap some of those.

Background: I accidentally bought about, oh, 500 pins off of ebay this past month (I didn't realize I'd win!!). Most of the pins came from one of your red-listed sellers so I'm betting that they're scrappers. No oily smell, but they did come directly from china. Does this mean I cannot trade them when I go to WDW? Will the CMs be able to say, "Hey...this one is ok, but we can't take that one."?
They will take any pins, but us collectors prefer there to be real pins on the lanyards for everyone. The red list doesn't necessarily mean that the pins are scrappers, but those sellers have been reported to us as selling scrappers in the past.

Go with your gut. If you think they are fake, we ask you to please keep them, give them as gifts, or make them into magnets as one Diser suggested.

I'm pretty new to pins. I've never traded before. I've purchased a few from ebay before and then some in the parks. They aren't ones I want to trade but I'm wondering if I've ever purchased a scapper without realizing it. If I were to post photos, think anyone would be able to tell if they were real or not? I suppose it doesn't really matter. I bought them because I like them and don't plan on trading.

I would like to recommend mollyannacoleman for the green list. I had a really fantastic transaction with her. I purchased a POTC 35th Anniversary LE of 1500 from her. It came within a week of payment and was on the original backer. I looked through her other sales and didn't notice any "lots." She sells a good mix including rack pins, LE's and starter kits. Nothing under 7.95.

I also had a good experience with sellandship. I bid on and won a Donald Duck POTC LE of 800 pin...paid over $20 for it. It didn't come on the backer but I compared it to pinpics and I am satisfied that it's authentic. He (she?) also sells a lot of non-pin Disney collectibles. Most of the pins are open for bidding and not "buy it now." According to their Ebay page, the seller is located in Orlando.

If you can hit the flower button on your camera (or whatever close up is) and get a good picture of the backstamp, and even a decent picture of the front, we would have a good idea. There is no way to be certain every time, especially without holding the pin.

Is anyone familiar with the ebay seller elizabethturner? They have many pins and pin lots for sale, but I didn't see them listed on any of the lists. I am looking to purchase some for November.

Thanks,

Always be cautious with lots. I also see that she sells WDI ID Badges, which are scrapped a lot. Can't make a definite call though.

423disneypinfreak scrappers

Wanted to get some pins before the trip, went with a seller with lots of great feedback, 100 pins, seller says that all the pins were purchased from Disney or traded for in Disney, about 30 are guaranteed scrappers, and pretty obvious. Most of the rest are on the suspect list, and you would have to assume that they are too. 1 or 2 pins that are real and 4 or 5 that if they are fake, are really good fakes. Seller: 423disneypinfreak

I can not find any auctions by them listed?

Also, before you do sellandship as a good seller, they too had a lot of the WDI ID Badges, loose and off card, 4-5 of each pin, and they still have even more now, which seems odd for a LE 300 pin run. I got a couple when I got my wedding cake topper from them a couple of months ago, and when I asked about scrappers, since one had it's pin loose, they took offense to the question when I asked was it meant to be loose like that and could I exchange it

Ooh! I should have figured that out. I actually have one of those. My friend got it for me when she was out in California and at the Imagineering store.

just got my pins from sleepy's emporium today
i had got the 12 pin lot of donald and a 12 pin lot of villains
as far as i can tell, all 24 are legit non scrapper pins....
there are some pretty cool rack pins in the lot too!
i'm tempted to get more, but, i think i'm going to wait until we go and come back, just so i can see what i trade for....

so, so far this green list of people have worked out great for me!
i am very happy with my pins from pinderlla's castle and sleepy's emporium!

thanks!
