color inconsistencies?

hi everyone, i am trying to figure out if these are scrappers or fakes. if anyone could help me that would be great. i found a couple of my pins have some color inconsistencies, nothing else really red flags me as being fake about them, only the colors.

the first ones are mine, the second ones are pin pics

pongo's collar on mine isn't colored in and neither are perdita's eyes, i also think pongo's ear is the wrong shade of pink

Dale's inner ears, teeth, and mouth aren't colored in on mine like the one on pinpics

sorry i was trying to post the pictures directly to the post but for some reason they never work

I think you got some duds :(

Unfortunately it looks like you got some fakes (or scrappers or counterfeits...whatever you want to call them). Colors are a giant red flag, especially when it comes to things either being the wrong color or more like things not colored in. They probably are a bit lighter or slightly thinner than authentic pins and I'm sure there are inconsistencies with the text/font on the back and the backstamp. Edges might be a little rough too which is a dead giveaway. If you get a chance to compare the Diamond pin to another one that is the real deal, you will surely notice more than color. Good luck and I hope your next trade is a better one for you. I have been trading a while and even I get nailed with stinkers in the heat of trading, especially if I'm doing a lot of trading on one trip.
