Please add Gixxer343 to the bad seller list. He advertised a pin as new in original, unopened packaging. When I got the pin, it was a scrapper pin on one of those fake Disney backer card in a resealable plastic bag, like the DSF bags. He refuses to refund.

Disney Pins $1.15 + Up

I am new to this and just booked the first trip to WDW for my kids and am looking at getting pins for them to trade. I saw a Facebook Page entitled "Disney Pins $1.15 + Up" and am wondering if anyone knows if these are authentic or scrappers. I would also appreciate any advice on how to get a good starter set of traders going for my kids.

Thanks!

Mjaner, I have bought from the Facebook page and they are awesome! ! I haven't bought the lots because I was looking for specific pins. I love that page.

My advice would be to make sure you set a decent budget in order to get legit pins! If you are looking for a good amount to start with, there are some great sellers out there that are willing to work with you.

Seller mubunny - on the green list

mubunny should absolutely stay green.

1. Received purchases exactly as described; 2. received purchases within the allotted time (standard shipping 5-7 days); 3. I checked each pin off of at least 3 different websites and none have signs of being scrappers; and 4. mubunny applied discount to shipping multiple purchases (I know that's standard practice but some crappy sellers haven't done that).

Overall, a successful experience. The pins are lovely and I know my DS10 and DD4 will love them.... and I can feel confident that they are trading legit pins.

Now on to buying from bizzybee1!

Are you living in the UK?? As I notice that mubunny is American and wondered if you got charged customs and the royal mail admin fee of £18?? Thanks

I bought a lot of 25. Only 4 were scrappers. I contacted them and they told me to send them back and get new ones or a refund. I had already mixed the good pins in with the ones to take to Disney to trade. So they asked me to remind them on my next purchase and they would take care of it for me. They asked for a list and how I knew they were fakes. and I sent him the webpages I used verify and sent him a list of the ones that were not real!!! Very eager to make the situation right!!!

seller: bizzybee1

bizzybee1 is FANTASTIC. I would absolutely buy from her again and again. Fantastic pins in original packaging -- I also purchased two lanyard pouches -- all in mint condition/new packaging!

I even made special requests (I just purchased a lot of 25) and she gave me exactly what my DS10 and DD4 would love.

Quick service, quick mailing and was exactly as I ordered.

100% Satisfied

I just bought my first set of 5 Snow White pins from e-bay, I had no idea about scrappers. I had read the reviews of my seller and bought the pins. They have not come in yet. I just wanted to say that I am so happy that my seller was on the green list. I feel very lucky. Thank you for this list.

Looks like I bought a few from a red seller, but most of mine are from a green one. I'll have to better inspect mine! I had no idea about scrappers and unfortunately I'm not well versed enough in pins.

Any easy ways to tell if they're scrappers? Most of mine didn't come with the backing (in his defense, he did state preowned) and if they did I didn't hang onto it.
