    Pixie and Mount when you get a chance could you please go to the thread New to Pin Trading - Please Help (I think that is the title of it) and offer some help to that poster. I have looked and given my best advice but would like for some others to look as well. Thanks!

    I have another seller I will be adding to the list but I am not sure which list yet. I bought two "lots" of four pins from them.....one lot had four peek around pins in it and one lot had four guitar pins in it. Then I put in a offer on the Tinkerbell guitar pin and they accepted. The pins arrived yesterday but the Tinkerbell pin was not in there. I checked on ebay and it says all pins were shipped together. I have sent a message to the seller but haven't heard anything back. I am hoping they send the pin on to me. If I file an INR with paypal they (the seller) has delivery confirmation (since all the pins were supposedly shipped together) so I would lose. Not sure what I am going to do if I don't hear back from them. :confused: I won't put the sellers name on here yet till I figure out how this is gonna work out.

    Hopefully they will get back to you. I will still try and get paypal to help you. If paypal says you can send back the items and get a full refund make sure you ask that the seller has to pay the shipping back. I know a seller that had to pay for the person to ship the items back and the buyer also got a full refund.

    I have thought about that Jen (filing a SNAD) but then that means I have to send back all the pins and I got a really good deal on these others. I just hope I hear from them and they make it right.

    I wonder if it was the seller I mentioned above. When I was reviewing what I'd won against what I'd received I noticed a pin was missing. :( I contacted the seller but have heard nothing, mine were all shipped together as well. If I do not receive the pin or any word from the seller (I will attempt contact 3 times before taking action) I will contact my credit card company and dispute the charge.

    Hello again and thank you to all who have welcomed me to the board. I'm loving pin trading. I started collecting them last year for my daughters after our first holiday to florida and have now started collecting them myself. Its great that the Disney Store in the UK have started doing the pin trading in the stores. Its not very big over here but I'm hoping it grows!
    Thanks for your input on the UK sellers I mentioned. The reason I thought the pins with the gold eyes were scrappers was because when I compared them with other pictures of the same pins they had painted eyes.
    I had actually thought that andyorangeplanes was the same person as directsuppliesuk. The person who emailed me from directsuppliesuk was called Andy and the shipping location is the exact same area of the UK as andyorangeplanes. I hate the though of I might be trading scrappers at my local Disney Store so I won't be trading any of the pins from directsuppliesuk.
    I'm sticking to buying off the sellers on the green list and from the Disney Store from now on.

    I got some pins today from domimgood, never ordered from him before but I asked him some very pointed questions and he was very polite and answered them all and very quickly too. I got the pins from him today and they seem legit. I started with a win of 5 total and I bid on more later so I am expecting more from him. The second set has more CL & LE's on it.....I'll report more when I receive the 2nd shipment.

    Kudos to pixiewings - she and I were on another thread regarding Disney Pins and she cited this collectors area. I had no clue this existed and now I am glad to have found you folks.

    I have a friend who I am 100% sure bought pins that were scrappers through EBAY - they are $1.70 per pin - to let her children trade at the park.

    I've turned her on to this posting so hopefully if she is going to buy again through EBAY she won't get scrappers.

    Please put the seller dzneypins on the green list. This was the seller that left out my Tinkerbell guitar pin. She did send it to me and apologized. I think it was a genuine mistake. All of the pins I received from her were excellent.

    So I got another small lot of 15 from Gold747, this lot is better but still has scrappers. I would leave him on the yellow list so people know to use caution with his lots. I know I won't be using him in the future, he's a nice guy but this is 2 lots I'm not happy with. I am going to keep them and trade the ones I think are OK and keep the others.

    Has anyone purchased from 423disneypinfreak? I contacted him about finding a couple of pins to complete a set and we have emailed and he has found one of those pins. I think he is a good seller but he did say that he could sell me a lot of pins and it would cost $42 for a lot of 20 and that is including shipping. I just want to make sure before I pay that much for pins that may not be good.

    I know they are on the "good list" but I just want to say that I got a set of 40 great pins from retiredreadingspecialist even some limited editions, and some pins I will be keeping, thanks for maintaining this thread. They came out to 1.79 a pin I think, and every one checked out against the scrapper test!

    Nope sorry
    I might buy from them actually, just one pin though to see the quality. I'd buy from another seller for now, though.
    Thanks!

    I just received my http://pinpics.com/cgi-bin/pin.cgi?pin=49369&sid=6637.1251135678&act=tao Everest Piece of Disney History Pin from duckosaurus. I believe that it is a real pin. I'll put them on the green list, but if anyone has any problem please post. The only real issues I had were the price tag sticker and the Mickey back. The sticker was generic; it didn't have any picture on it. Not sure if that is the correct sticker, because I never purchased a PODH pin directly from Disney. Also, the Mickey back looks fake, but everyone has fake Mickey backs. He may have had the pin he sold me on a cork board, and took it off and picked up a back.
