Just to report, I have a few of the WDI ID badges, they are all scrappers. That's OK with me, I wanted them for ME and not for trade or resale and I paid almost nothing for it.

Okay, so I'm 99.9% sure at least one of the pins I got off ebay is a fake. I can't remember who I got it from because it was over a year ago.

It's a WDI Space Mountain pin. The reason I'm pretty sure it's fake is becaue the stuff on the back is just typed in black. It's flat. Not stamped into it. I feel bad because it's a pin I bought online for my husband. He said he doesn't care though since he doesn't plan on trading it ever.

I thought I'd share pictures of it.

Here's the front -


And here's the back -



It looks silver without the flash. So here's one with the flash. You can't read the words as well here though.




(Sorry if this shouldn't have been posted in this thread. I'm not familiar with this section of the board. Let me know if I should take this elsewhere. I have a couple pins I'm not sure about but I don't know if I should post photos and ask here or somewhere else)

That is PinPics #39165. There isn't any information regarding the possibility of it being a fake/scrapper pin on PinPics. Maybe someone else will see this post own that pin and can verify if the back is stamped ON or INTO the finish. Good luck!

I have a Maleficent one and a Mickey one and I got a couple for the girls but can't remember which ones. I have a lot of really cool Maleficent pins (I love her) and I just wanted to add the WDI pin, I bought it assuming it was fake and yup, it's got those horrible directional scratches and no shiny finish on it.

there are some pins that are legit that have no back stamp but rather a print. I've seen some and I might still have some, I'd have to check. Another good thing to note is the dangle part has the waffle print that goes off the edge, I think you might have a good pin there.

Really?? Crazy. I was for sure the regular print meant it was a fake. (I'm still really new to this pin stuff.)

Can I post a few more pins to get opinions? Or should I make a new thread for that?

Hmm, looks the same to my eyes. I wish they had a photo of the back.

Please start a new thread with pics of other pins, that helps to keep this one focused on eBay sellers.

Pinpics doesn't do photos of the backs, what they do is put a scrapper warning on the page, if you go here http://www.pinpics.com/cgi-bin/pin.c....1280020835.v2 and scroll down you will see what I mean by the scrapper warning.

I also wanted to pop in with more feedback on Domimgood, I am watching 1 pin he has up for auction and also some silly bandz. I did notice that he has some LE fairy pins up with photos of the front and back, the photo of the back you can clearly see what we are referring to when we say there's a border around the edge, that's not supposed to be there, those Mickey heads are supposed to go all the way off the edges of the back. I don't want to post a link but if you do a search for his eBay name and scroll and few pages back you'll see what I'm referring to. So he definitely needs to be at least on the yellow list. Like I said, I am watching a pin but if I do end up with it it will be added to my collection and not traded.

Sorry. I can edit my post but I guess it wouldn't matter since it was quoted. Sorry about that.

Oh Amy, no worries!! This thread is just huge and it takes a lot to get thru all 59 pages so if we can start a new thread with questions on specific pins that would help. It's not a problem at all, I'm glad you posted here.

I went to his page & I see exactly what you're saying. Here's my question though. If this seller has taken the time to post pics of the front & back of the pins (most sellers don't) is he hoping buyers don't know any better or is he just an uneducated seller that thinks he/she has legitimate pins for sale?

I'm starting to think I may give up pin trading. It used to be fun but now it just seems like a lot of work. Having to check every pin against pinpics & worrying about putting scrappers into the system by trading with CMs at the parks. Maybe ignorance was bliss, but too late to go back now.

I don't know....I should ask him if he knows about that. But I do know that every pin I got from him with my last purchase looked really great until the next day when I looked under better lighting. Unfortunately I'd already left my good FB for that purchase.

WOW! this thread is awesome! Im headed to WDW this December and I am making some gift bags for my younger cousins that are going and I thought it would be sooo fun to start their pin collections!

Im soo happy I found this thread because I was really starting to worry about the sellers on ebay.

I am watching a few from "domimgood" but now Im thinking.. no thanks.
I am now searching the "great" sellers to purchase from them!

Gosh some people are just crooks, sickening what people will do for a buck!

Thanks for the amazing posts!
