gordo1111 is selling an LE 500 pin set originally sold for $85 for $30... definitely questionable

I'm very disappointed because they came highly recommended and were listed on the green list.

I've emailed them pictures and comparisons of the bad pins. I'll report back & let you know what I hear.

Cheers,

Maybe they shouldn't be on the green list. JMHO.

I have decided to purchase my pins from a few of the other green list sellers and have had very good results. I'm trying hard not to circulate scrappers.

I agree that maybe sleepysemporium should be moved to a caution on the main page as opposedto green.
I will definitely move them to the orange list. I received about 10/50 scrappers, and they offered a refund. However, a lot of people are reporting higher numbers of scrappers.

AP counterfits

Sellers are stamping AP on the backs of pins and selling them as authentic AP pins. CFC93 has 400 plus for sell. I bought some and they are suspect. Poorly done AP stamps, some are very small and when you look at them under a magnifying glass they don"t even say AP, just scratches. Thanks for the info about realfastpins I wondered what happened to them.

OK so I purchased 12 pins from sleepysemporium and received them today. And only one is questionable and its because it has a few dents and snags on it.. and I emailed them today about it. and a weird film on one side.. hard to explain.

Im still confused on how to figure out if it is a scrapper or not?!

I also purchased from sunshinesunwear and the pins were great!

I also purchased from steamboatwillie and waiting to receive the pin!

The pins shown are pins that have been copied. Therefore, unauthorized versions of that pin exist.

Please check the Signs of Scrappers thread.

The #1 method I use is comparing the official logo on the backstamp to rack pins I bought at WDW. Official pins will have the exact same backstamp (font, proportions, cleanness) except the size. Dents/snags are natural with the wear and tear of a pin, it doesn't mean it's a scrapper.

There are scrapper versions of these pins. Keep in mind there are plenty of official pins as well!

Also, this is by no means a complete list. EVERY PIN has the possibility of being scrapped.

I just won 3 pins (individually) from sportsfiendny on ebay. I paid for these on July 30 and on August 13 still had not received them. Emailed the seller, she said the package had been sent. 5 days later I still had not heard from the seller or received the package so I opened a case against it. The seller contacts me and said the package was mailed. Then said she had 2 of the same pins that I had bought but not one of them. I got a full refund. If she had duplicates chances are good they were scrappers. I did not receive any pins so I cannot say for sure if they were but the whole thing was just not a good transaction.

Yes, I have bought pins from 52jcmdisneypins. Sorry I'm so late responding.

DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SELLER! I bought a lot of 50 pins from them back in '08 and every single pin was a scrapper. When I told them they sold me scrappers they said: "I am sorry you are unhappy with your lot of pins, please accept my apologies. I have noticed that the pin quality that I have been trading for have been getting poorer, and I have been finding more and more scrapper pins. I try and catch them before I sell, but I was on vacation and wasn't as vigalent as I normally am."

Sure, sure.. a flat out lie. I asked for a refund of the auction amount, plus shipping(both ways) and I sent the pins back. They agreed. When they filed with ebay to get their charges back they said "both agreed not go through with the auction". and then asked if I could leave positive feedback for them, or none at all.

Because of this scapper incident I had, I am scared to buy pins off ebay at all. There is a small lot of CM lanyard/hidden mickey pins I want right now, but I don't want to buy them in case they are counterfeit.
