I also need 2 laynards. Any suggestions - are all lanyards equal?

Thanks!

Lanyards are lanyards, it really doesn't matter as long as you can stick a pin thru it. You will want to avoid the "string" style lanyard due to that. The CM's usually do not know how to tell a scrapper so yes, it's very possible you could end up with scrappers and not know it. I know I have quite a few scrappers in my home collection, you can either let that discourage you completely or you can simply accept that it's very likely and collect them anyway. You can chose to simply purchase them new in the parks, but be aware that you may not find Hidden Mickey or Cast Lanyard pins in the parks at all, those are generally only available by trading, altho you may find mystery packs and those will have the HM/CL pins.
My suggestion would be to use the sellers listed in green on our main page and go from there, Pindy usually has lanyards and last time I ordered 50 pins from her I received 2 free lanyards, that was nice.

Can anyone recommend a seller who does sell lots? It seems like anyone on Ebay who sells lots will have scrappers?
I am hopeful to pick up 30 or so pins before our trip in 26 days. YIKES!

Long story short DH dad bought the kids lanyards on their trip this week and now they are interested in trading! Thanks Dad

Pinderellas_Castle, she should be listed as green on page 1, she sent me a lot with 2 free lanyards, 50 pins for $89.99.

Mickeystreasure, he should also be listed but he may not have any lots up right now.


Scrappers can be very difficult to determine, it really varies from pin to pin. Sometimes it's color differences, sometimes it's paint dimples, sometimes the backstamp is wrong, it really just depends on the pin. The best advice I have is to go to pinpics.com, use the search function and type in scrappers, it will pull up some known scrappers for you to see.

I recently bought several pins (all specific pin buys) from beekerlg, she was very good. The pins were not scrappers and I recieved a great service from her.

I also bought several individual pins from kather99. I also revieved a great service from her. Although the pins seemed great, they did not flag up as scrappers on pinpics and they looked great they did have a smell to them which was strange. But I was buying them to complete collections so I am keeping them anyway.

Mikeandnancy1020 were very easy to work with. They shipped right away (for free), and the pins arrived on a Disney card with the black mouse ear backs, wrapped in bubble wrap.

Thanks!

I have the pirate hat pin at home, I can compare them but I'm not sure exactly when. When I get home tonight I'm on go until Sunday so it may be a few days.

No, sorry. I wouldn't go by FB tho, it's too hard to really tell by that.

Edited to add that I'd also be wary because it appears this seller has a lot of pins that are from the US, but they are in Hong Kong, so where are they getting all these pins? That would be my question. They are selling for close to rack prices tho.....

Thanks for checking. Maybe this seller can be considered for the green list? I'm not sure what the criteria for that is...

You've taken the right steps, we just ask that people weigh in with their own personal experiences. You've done that so we can move forward. Mt Nittany makes the edits to the thread, I'm sure as soon possible it will be edited.
