Agreed that standards may be lowered, which is unfortunate considering price increases... This also mucks up the water between genuine pins and lower quality scrappers and fakes. I was really surprised at the quality of pins on trading lanyards on our trip. - cynDOLEwhip 1175.5 #136 5-27-12 11:55AMLikeReply
I received an le 250 pin from Disneystore.com with some awful discoloration. Luckily they were nice about it and replaced it. - Pixarprincess 540.9 #358 5-27-12 12:33PMLikeReply
Even though I only have a few pins and don't trade I appreciate these warning. I cant believe these are being sold in the stores. Really something should be done. I know nothing much can be done on the fake market but yes Disney needs to step up. - disneygal 433.2 #467 5-27-12 12:42PMLikeReply
Every pin has a problem somewhere on it been collecting for along time well over 1000 pins now it just happens with the color they get scratched you just need to really look over the pin before you buy as for the cm having fakes most of the cast member change them on there breaks or end of the day they throw them away - magicmickey89 107.3 #3383 5-27-12 1:17PMLikeReply
Just be careful that with the crowds growing everyday, there are more fake pins being traded with CMs. Personally, I try to take them off my lanyard and inform guests about fakes, but recently, I've received so many that I have to put it back on my lanyard because I run out of pins to offer for trading - BaseballMickey_CM 7100.8 #9 5-27-12 1:31PMLikeReply
Sellers on amazon seem to have better lots than on ebay, a little spendier, but.... - madsdad 1868.1 #79 6-4-12 8:19PMLikeReply
It's so true! I bought a Rapunzel pin a few months ago at World of Disney and when I got home I realized part of the silver and paint was chipped off the top and you could see the underlying metal of the pin! I never returned her out of laziness and the fact that you can't really see it when she's pinned on a lanyard but she totally looks fake and cheap because of it. - LaneSparrow316 847.0 #199 6-4-12 8:23PMLikeReply
