Is wanting for my ds to do pin trading I bought some on eBay but only 25. We are going to be there 6 days do you all think I should buy him more...like another 25?

Good idea but be careful because there are a lot of fake pins sold online. There's some tips on spotting fakes on the DL MW if you search that topic. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #21 10:29AM

I had heard that there were, I did buy some they have the Mickey head for te stopper and they allay official trading pin. I am Hoping they are good I am going to search the topic though. Thank you for the tip! - ccmom  187.5 #47 12:50PM
Even if they have a Mickey head stopper and "official" marking doesn't mean they are really official, but there are other ways to determine if it's a fake or not - nodell111  166.4 #54 1:32PM
If you have an ereader search for MouseWait. They have a book on how to spot fake or scrapper pins. It's written by MW DLs very own StrawberryGuy. - KermitFan13  653.7 #306 1:12PM
I read some on them I think all but about 10 are fake or scrapper pins. Guess it's my bad for thinking that some people on eBay could actually be honest when they said "authentic tradif pins" ugh.... - ccmom  187.5 #47 1:20PM
Sorry. I could happen to anyone. Glad they know how to assist us in not getting ripped off. - 5disneylovers  1152.5 #6 1:56PM
I am completely in the dark about this as well...how did you find out you had some scrappers? - ncjal  288.4 #28 1:52PM
I did what jalex said to do I searched it and there was some ways they had listed but I am going to get the book they suggest to research it more. But many of mine had pits (little dips in them), some were extremely light to hold, and when I dropped them they sounded like checkers not coins. I think when I get to Disney I am going to buy some from there. I hears you can get a bag of a few at world of Disney? - ccmom  187.5 #47 2:22PM
ok, thanks...I will check it out....I have lots of pins...hopefully none are scrappers!! Sad that people do that!! - ncjal  288.4 #28 2:27PM
I know It just ruins the fun of it! Then prices go up for the real ones! I wa lucky and got a single one that was real so that made me happy since I spent more. Some of the scrappers are cute so I plannin keeping them anyways to just let the kids play with at home... - ccmom  187.5 #47 2:41PM
