    Sorry for posting twice in such a short space of time but I was just wondering whether there is a way to tell if a pin has ever been faked or not. I know there are lots of ways to tell if a pin is fake however I know that not all pins have been faked in the first place. Is there some kind of website i can use?

    Thank You

    For the most part, there are a couple of resources. PinPics sometimes has information in their comments or in the counterfeit section. You can always ask here as well. A really easy way to know is also to check the Auction Site to see what's there. If there are a lot of sellers from China or Hong Kong selling the pin for a really good price, dollars to donuts it's been faked.
