    Re: How many pins do you trade in a day or trip?

    Whats a scrapper?
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: How many pins do you trade in a day or trip?

    My Girlfriend and I just REALLY got into trading pins and traded about 20 on a two day trip. We are excited about our next journey to hunt down the coolest pins

    Scrappers are pins that were made in the factories in China over the allotment made by Disney. Are they a Disney pin? Yes they are.. but they are pins over and above the allotment "ordered" by Disney. So in essence, they could be called illegally made Disney Pins. Sometimes when the "second illegal run" of the pin is done, there are differences noted, but it can only be known comparing two pins side by side. These pins can also be classified as counterfeits.

    Also, if the pin is made for Disney, and there is some error or variation noted, the pin may be "thrown on the floor" to be "discarded". Thus, the term "scrapper", as the pin should have been "scrapped". Unfortunately, they are not discarded and those may be the pins you are seeing being sold. When a pin is made, a mold is used. For whatever reason, the mold is not destroyed, so these pins can be reproduced again. What is happening, is that some overseas factories are making more pins for individuals who ask for them.

    Recently, a factory in China has been soliciting individuals not associated with Disney to purchase Disney Pins without the authority of Disney. Included in these e-mails, are images of pins. The e-mail states:

    Are you interesting about Disney pins? Our
    factory can provide different style Disney pins
    to you in stock. We have stock goods so that you
    donĄŻt need pay for die charge.


    Every pin released by Disney has the potential of being a scrapper. Once again, no one can guarantee the authenticity of any Disney pin unless it was purchased directly from Disney.


    Some folks here have stated they have lots of pins shipped to them in excess of 100+ at a time... more than likely... these are scrappers!!! Most don't know - others will blatantly deny knowing when they know fully well what they are doing. The pins have copywrite Disney on them, so a CM must accept them, and many CMs aren't told about this problem anyway.

    For more information on this subject, or pin trading in general... always check with the people in the know at: www.dizpins.com OR www.pinpics.com

    Re: How many pins do you trade in a day or trip?

    Wow, That was great info on scappers. I'm not into trading and that will make me even less likely to do so. We only get to DLR once a year for a few days so I buy only the pins I like and they get put on my lanyard for that trip with locking backs. I'll spend upwards of $200 per trip on pins and I have all of my lanyards from past trips hanging in my office.
    You can think I'm wrong, but that's no reason to quit thinking.
