Nice plug for the book! Anyways, especially during the peak season, you start seeing a LOT (and I mean a LOT) of fake pins being traded in the park. Also, I'm starting to teach more and more CMs I work with on how to spot fakes. - BaseballMickey_CM 6340.8 #12 7-30-12 7:14PMLike(2)Reply
I read the book last week. It was well written and very informative. I was amazed at how people knowingly trade fake pins. My daughter and I usually only trade pins with CMs for pins we like. Now I know what to look for. Thank you so much for this book. - CinderellasMom 264.5 #1106 7-30-12 8:24PMLike(1)Reply
Usually I do but I wasn't really paying much attention that day. Was having way too much fun with my bestie to check right away. Even so, sometimes I can't tell right off, expecially if it's dark out. - PrincessLani 111.2 #3236 8-1-12 9:02PMLikeReply
Thanks to the "How to spot fake disney pins" I was able to catch this little beauty in my work traders. Other than the eyes, there is some bad bubbling/discoloration on the flower petals. I'm going to educate my cast about this stuff soon More...
They got me. As you can see this seems like an obvious fake. The "Ebter" any time between is the giveaway. Anyways, what is the proper etiquette for getting rid of the fake pins. Turn in to city hall? Does DL care about fake pins and want More...
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 More...
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 272.8 #1024 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 #17531 5-10-12 3:13PMLike(1)Reply
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 634.4 #269 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 970.1 #159 5-10-12 4:32PMLikeReply
#Pin Spotting- All of the following are fake pins. 1) this is from the 2012 DLR Hidden Mickey set. You can tell its fake because the lines are thick and the name "Sagittarius" is not written straight. 2) This Cruella Bowling pin is comple More...
