I just got four pins in the mail that I got off eBay. (I know, I know, you guys warned me to be careful-but the seller had a really good rating!)
The pins are nice. I think I will keep most of them but I want to make sure that they are all legitimate, in case I want to trade one. I would never trade one if it was not on the up and up.
So we got four pins. Two of them have backs just like my pins I got at the parks: smooth with the pin trading emblem and the Disney copyright.
But it is the other two that I am worried about:
The back is not smooth, but rather has a mickey head pattern. It still has the pin trading emblem and the Disney copyright but it has the mickey head pattern and it says first release.
What does this mean? Are the pins legit? Or was I duped?
