    EBay Trader Pins Question...

    Ok I'm trying to buy some traders on ebay for my upcoming WDW trip... Of course I ended up buying a lot of 20 that has quite a few I want to keep but anyway....

    I was wondering if anyone knows any decent sellers who have non-sesedma pins i bulk? Seems like the larger lots were all sesdema pins, and I'm trying to stay away from them

    Just wanna kow how to get a good deal on larger lots, like 40 or 50.

    BTW the pins I bought... smell like gasoline My hands reeked after I touched them. strange lol

    P.S. Sorry dunno how to spell sesdema correctly!

    I have a source in Orlando I used that sold them in bulk for about $2.50 or each or so. They were not junk. Almost half of them were cast lanyard. I'll try to dig up the address or website for ya.

    sesedma (SP) are made in Spain. They are OK and legal to use... but frowned upon. I'd rather have the official disney China made pins to trade

    steamboatpete, I'd appreciate it

    Ok, the only pins that smell like gasoline are called scrappers. Recently these these have grown in number. They are not Disney made pins. these are made After the official allotment of pins that disney has made. They always have a color variation off the original one. These are frowned upon more so than sedesmas. Do not buy cast lanyards in bulk, these will always be scrappers, and avoid ebayers that sell the same pins over and over in lots.

    Thanks for the info. I really hope thse aren't fakes. The seller had a 99.9% rating and wasn't selling any other like them so I thought it was safe. I'll look into them, thanks.

    do you have the names of any legit ebayers that charge a good rice? Thats' really what I am looking for.

    How can you know if there is a color variation from the original if you only have one? I'm asking because I'm starting to wonder if some pins that I recently traded for might be scrappers.

    Also just my annoying curious streak... Why do these pins smell like gasoline and how long does the odor linger? Can you tell by smell rather than sight if a pin is a scrapper?

    S-E-D-E-S-M-A That is how it is spelled and pronounced...
    It is hard to know which are good pins and which are not. I have been lucky, but have also picked up scrappers. You won't know until you get them. A rating does not neccessarily make the seller have ONLY good trading pins. There are so many fakes, scrappers, seconds and Euro pins like Sedesma and Propins (from Germany) out there! I buy almost ALL my pins from eBay and I deal with only a few very well trusted sellers. I do not usually buy trader lots, but have in the past bought one or two. Most of the pins were authentic, but nothing to write home about.
    If you buy from eBay, you take your chances. It took me a while to get to know some of the sellers really well and now we are friends and I only pick up the pins I want from them and theuy actually will go find me the pins I want, since I am so far from the Parks and do not get to them often. They did get a lot of new pins listed this past 2 weeks from the NFFC convention and everyone seemed to have great stuff!
    Good luck!

    Re: EBay Trader Pins Question...

    The smell of gasoline really never goes away. I have kept some of the mickey backers from scrappers and they still smell and these are atleast a year old now. They also seem to make the other backers smell(if you keep them in a jar). If the original rubber backer has been removed from the pin, then it is very hard to smell the difference. there may be a slight smell but that is it.
    The only way to truly know if you have a scrapper, other than the smell, is to compare it with the original. There will ALWAYS be a color difference. Some are lighter, some are darker. Some are near impossible to tell, others can be seen right away. If you ever go to DL, look me up. I can tell if you have a scrapper almost instantly. Infact, most traders come to me and ask me before they make a trade for a cast lanyard.
