    Pinderellas_Castle, she should be listed as green on page 1, she sent me a lot with 2 free lanyards, 50 pins for $89.99.

    Mickeystreasure, he should also be listed but he may not have any lots up right now.


    Scrappers can be very difficult to determine, it really varies from pin to pin. Sometimes it's color differences, sometimes it's paint dimples, sometimes the backstamp is wrong, it really just depends on the pin. The best advice I have is to go to pinpics.com, use the search function and type in scrappers, it will pull up some known scrappers for you to see.

    I recently bought several pins (all specific pin buys) from beekerlg, she was very good. The pins were not scrappers and I recieved a great service from her.

    I also bought several individual pins from kather99. I also revieved a great service from her. Although the pins seemed great, they did not flag up as scrappers on pinpics and they looked great they did have a smell to them which was strange. But I was buying them to complete collections so I am keeping them anyway.

    I've purchased two pins from them. I'm brand new to collecting, so I don't know what I'm doing. :rotfl2: I've taken pictures of the front and back of each pin. Both of these pins are heavy, if that helps. I'd appreciate it if anyone can take a look, and give me their opinion.

    Mikeandnancy1020 were very easy to work with. They shipped right away (for free), and the pins arrived on a Disney card with the black mouse ear backs, wrapped in bubble wrap.

    Thanks!

    anyone have any experience with ebay user wonwon901 ?

    he seems to have good feedback but it says his items are located in hong kong and he seems to be below retail.

    I have the pirate hat pin at home, I can compare them but I'm not sure exactly when. When I get home tonight I'm on go until Sunday so it may be a few days.

    No, sorry. I wouldn't go by FB tho, it's too hard to really tell by that.

    Edited to add that I'd also be wary because it appears this seller has a lot of pins that are from the US, but they are in Hong Kong, so where are they getting all these pins? That would be my question. They are selling for close to rack prices tho.....

    Thanks for checking. Maybe this seller can be considered for the green list? I'm not sure what the criteria for that is...

    You've taken the right steps, we just ask that people weigh in with their own personal experiences. You've done that so we can move forward. Mt Nittany makes the edits to the thread, I'm sure as soon possible it will be edited. :)

    I just bought 10 piins from Ebay seller Shipwick for $1.09 a piece. I just got them today (quick shipper) and all are authentic pins and great traders in my opinion. I am actually thinking about buying a few more from him/her.

    hmmm, I'll have to make a purchase from them and see how they are, there are a few things that worry me about the auction but I'm willing to give them a try. :) Thanks for the info!

    I'll be interested to hear your impressions. I can't say that I "love" any of the pins that we were sent, but there were 3 that we are going to keep and put in our collector book. I think out of the 10 there were 3 Hidden Mickey pins.

    I only wonder onto the collectors board every once in an insomniactic while. I'm glad to see a compiling of the good, bad and ugly pin sellers on the dis. :wizard:

    Even though they are already on green, just wanted to say that I have purchased from both gyantzpod and thewill and gotten very nice pins in the past. Also I just won 2 lanyard medals (didn't buy any pins) from trueblu2006 both are authentic and came on their original backer. :thumbsup2

    Unfortunately I do have a seller for you to add to the red list. funmamas. I ordered 2 mixed lots of 30 total pins for our upcoming trip. Sad to say that every single pin I received for her has pitting in the paint. Over half have the directional scuffs. And about a quarter of them are really low and old LE's that I doubt anyone would give away... :sad2:

    Just contact Gary at MP and let him know, he will ship as soon as he can, he may even offer to ship to your hotel. He has offered that to me in the past. :)
