    Hi friends!

    My D23 Constance pin arrived today and I was so excited until I opened the hinge and noticed that it seems like some ink has smudged on her veil and dress. It’s difficult to photograph, but it almost looks like a dirty fingerprint.

    If anyone knows whether this a production error or the way all of the Constance pins were made, that would be so helpful. (I certainly don’t want to cause a stink without knowing if this is what they’re supposed to look like!)

    Thank you so, so much!

    P.S. I got her from eBay, not here. No worries!

    Edit: I edited with a picture that shows the “smudge” a little bit better.

    Try taking some acetone on a q-tip and rubbing it on there, but be careful to avoid any areas with screen printing. Or maybe a magic eraser if that doesn't work.

    That's not what my sis' looks like, I can tell you that.

    Thank you! I’m sad, but it’s really helpful to know that’s not what they’re supposed to look like.

    Thank you! I actually did notice that some others on eBay have the same smudge. It seems like it shouldn’t be there, but maybe it is a production error after all.

    I hope I’m allowed to post these photos as long as I don’t link the auctions themselves, but these are from eBay, both by different sellers than where I got mine from, and they’ve got the same smudge.

    Using those photos is fine! Yeah, maybe a production error or maybe some worker in the factory forgot to wash their hands
