    Hello! I am trying rather hard to figure out if this Fantasia centaurette pin I purchased is legitimate or not. Has anyone ever heard of there being four golden prototypes (before the black LE 250 were produced) or did someone invent that notion entirely and fake this golden version of the pin? I can't find any record of there having been four golden prototypes. Also not sure if this helps but it's a disney auctions pin. Everything seems to be identical except for the color... but I'm also not the greatest at this. What do you guys make of this?

    Looks legit and yes, different color metal prototypes were created for a lot of the DA pins. Just because it isn't on PP doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

    As posted in your other thread:

    Yup, looks fine. Back in the day, DA created and frequently sold prototypes of the two alternate metal colors from their released pins. So, if the pin was released on black metal, they would also have gold and silver prototypes. Or if it was released on gold metal, it would have black and silver prototypes, etc. Later in their run and into the and era, they would have artist proof sets (sometimes marked, sometimes not) of all three metal colors that would be released together.

    You've got the pin with the COA, you're good.
