I'm doing some research on it now. I love how this seller justifies the cost of shipping - which is a total crock.

I just shipped out 5 pins, on back cards, in a bubble mailer for 1.87, including confirmation with shipping through paypal.

I buy a box of 25 mailers for $3.50 at Sams Club.

I just found the pin looking through the scrapper screenshots on this dizpins.com/pinventory/scrappers.htm page. Seems to be a non-official creation.

That's not true! I keep alot of my loose pins in little baggies to protect them. I kept tons of my pins in pin binder or pin books (and the cards are long gone) and now that I'm sorting through my collection to sell, I put them in the little baggies to protect them from scratches.

Also my husband was a Cast Member for a long time during my pin collecting days and we use to buy CM exclusive pins from the Company D store. For many years when pin collecting started (late 1999....) the CM pins were sold to us in little baggies with a staple on them. Generally no price tag as the prices were listed on the board.

I'm no scrapper at all (most of my pins are 2005 or earlier) and would not want any new pin folks to think that us pin collectors from the beginning were selling or trading unofficial pins.

I just spend all day yesterday listing older pins from a variety of series -- both WDW and Disney Store. Ebay was running a one day special for penny listings, so I put on as many pins as I could before time ran out. If anyone is looking for a pin to complete a series, it may be on my listing....after you sort through the massive beanies first! (yes I was very obsessed back then) While I don't really have any tradeable pins listed, I've pretty much moved to listing collectible pins. Take a look if you're interested. I'm JJT219 Also, with this new penny listing yesterday, I'm sure ebay is going to have a huge stock of merchandise. I think it will be a buyers market for the next week! I tried to keep my shipping down. Most of my pins have shipping for $2.00, which just covers shipping and a small part to go to the supplies -- bubble mailer and shipping labels -- I don't think my shipping price is too bad. Plus I combine orders when needed and it saves me the supplies and the buyer the extra cost!

I looked at pinpics and found it there

http://pinpics.com/cgi-bin/pin.cgi?p....1311764775.v2

It is part of a set. I can't tell you if the one you are looking at is genuine or not.

Just wanted to mention that when pin trading began, it was not usual for a frame pin set or a boxed pin set be separated and the pins be traded. This one you question looks like it came from the Disney Catalog (that's where my husband worked for 8 years). He would often bring home broken sets or damaged pin cards and I would take the good pins off and trade them. I've got dozens of cards from special collecting events (advent calendar) that the catalog would run and I would trade pins from them often. I've been a member of pinpics since the beginning and contributed to the database during my pin trading days. I don't trade online anymore, but I still use this valuable pin trading database.

I'm more of a lurker than a poster, but figure its my Disney duty to inform others:

real.cool.stuff = Every single one was a scrapper (ordered a lot of 26)

dizneymandoug - All appear to be legitimate, most came with the cardboard backings and a few from a mystery set were still in there black bags. Purchased 50, and just waiting for them to list another lot so I can buy more!!

Just wondering how you knew they were all scrappers? DH just bought a set (from real.cool.stuff ) for DS and they arrived today. What should I be looking for or can I assume they are junk?

We are new to pin trading and this is the first time we have ever bought other than in the parks.

Thanks.

Last day I found this comment on pinpics:
"upon careful observation, the most common way to tell a fake on the new pins (95% of them) is to look at the stamp on the back. If you look at the Mickey imprint within the authentic stamp,the background should be smooth, on the fakes it is the same at the rest of the pinback...rough"

For those that bought lots on ebay recently, can you confirm this comment?

Not always. A few of mine are like that, but majority are not. The easiest way to tell is usually the border of the pin. If it is rough, has sharp spots of metal, etc, it likely is a fake/scrapper. Also goes for if the border is thick, as real Disney pins do not have any edge/rim on the pins, it just looks like it was cut clean. If you don't have any legit pins to compare it to, it can be hard to tell at first, but one you see the difference it is easy to pick them out usually. Beyond that, the colors are sometimes really off (or completely missing in some spots), the backs of the pins are missing the ©Disney info - A lot of fake pins, not necessarily scrappers, are also lighter than legitimate disney pins.

I just received the pins from him. 4 of the 25 are definitely scrappers. The 5 character alphabet ones I think are, Now I'm wondering if the other 16 which I think are authentic are not. I am going to contact him about returning and getting a refund.

Click on the "advanced" button that is to the right/top. There you will see options to do searches on ... buyer, seller, item

I have a question. I recently saw some pins on eBay that were part of a set I was interested in (letters that spell out "princess"). I thought they might be hard to find, so I snapped them up, thinking someone was selling their collection. Now I'm seeing more and more of them, some with "Buy it Now" prices of $20+, consistent with pieces of a framed set, and some going for under $2. I'm beginning to think they've been copied, and I'm going to get scrappers, despite there being no warning on pin pics.

Here's the most annoying part: one of the pins (the P) seems completely unavailable; I have never seen it on eBay. It has little gems on it; I'm wondering if it cost too much to make cheap copies. So now i think that not only have I bought scrappers (at least I won't be trading them), I've set myself up to never be able to find the pin I need to complete the set!

Anyone know anything about these? They're #69133 on pin pics. Anyone have any guesses, or suspicions like mine?

Thanks.
