I haven't been in there for a few weeks, so they probably changed it since then - BaseballMickey  9257.8 #14 8-14-12 5:10PM
I don't trade pins, just buy them from the parks so I'm safe, although out of pocket lol - TrueFromOzLovesDisney   602.5 #401 8-14-12 5:57PM Like  Reply

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   9257.8 #14 7-30-12 7:14PM Like(2)  Reply
Thanx BaseballMickey for all you do! Hopefully the other CMs will take this as seriously as you. - fvbmermaid  237.8 #1657 8-2-12 6:10PM
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 #1368 7-30-12 8:24PM Like(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   111.3 #3609 8-1-12 9:02PM Like  Reply

If you got it from a CM, you should try and find that same CM and alert them to it. They should let you trade for another one. - LaneSparrow316   847.0 #268 5-21-12 2:57PM Like  Reply
I agree. Or trade it for a real one to a blind kid ala Dumber and Dumber like. - ManBearPig  417.0 #624 5-21-12 3:03PM

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   281.0 #1203 5-10-12 3:00PM Like(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 #22469 5-10-12 3:13PM Like(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   1162.9 #194 5-10-12 3:05PM Like  Reply
Sure. What would you like for it? 😁 - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #233 5-10-12 5:24PM
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_CM   1002.5 #233 5-10-12 4:32PM Like  Reply
