Can you help me out Strawberry? Is this an authentic pin? My hearts saying no cause the coloring in the mouth is off and it feels extremely light in weight. I may still keep it because I'm trying to collect chip and dale. (hope this came out better)
I don't claim to be an expert at pin fakes, but I'm in manufacturing, and any flash (metal left from defects in releasing from the mold) left on the edges of pins would have been rejected at final inspection by Disney. Having said that, if you like it, and weren't "swindled" in the transaction (i.e. paid big bucks on eBay for what you thought was legit), then keep it for collection. - Shroppy 272.5 #1010 5-10-12 3:00PMLike(1)Reply
I think if you like your pin a lot, and especially if you paid big bucks for it, you should keep it even if it is fake. It's a cute pin to have in your chip and dale collection :D - LivHeartsDL 4.7 #16834 5-10-12 3:13PMLike(1)Reply
If those pieces of flash are sharp, you can usually knock them off to keep them from scratching you if you're going to wear it on your lanyard. Use an an Xacto knife held perpendicular to the edge, from the backside and just run it along the edge, it's probably not holding on by much. The only thing to note is you will expose the base metal that won't be plated, and will probably be gold in color (brass). - Shroppy 272.5 #1010 5-10-12 3:18PMLike(1)Reply
I like your optimism. Even though I have a couple pins that I know are fake in my collection, I keep them because I collect those characters and haven't come across the legit ones yet. - LaneSparrow316 847.0 #176 5-10-12 3:02PMLikeReply
I have a Chip and Dale you can have. I bought it in DL on my last trip. It's from the HM set. If you're interested I could post a pic for you. - GoofyMom77 473.1 #384 5-10-12 3:05PMLikeReply
Thank you all for the info. I got this from a trade at the emporium. I suspected because of the grey beards and that it felt lighter then usual. Eagerly waiting for the kindle book. :) - Waites4DodgerEars 967.9 #153 5-10-12 4:32PMLikeReply
