    I recently acquired some Disney Auction pins, and I think they might be fake. Any tips on how to spot them? Update: @starry_solo added the pictures (whoah, you can really see my fingerprints, lol!). Thank you!

    Which ones? It just depends on the pin.

    Stitch is not my specialty, but I haven't seen those pins in scrapper pin trader books. I suggest using the way back machine to see if old Pinpics knows anything. You just input the URL for the pin and see if there's an older version of that pin page that has scrapper notes on it.

    If they came with the card and the card has the matching serial number on it, you're good. Also, they look really good and like an actual Auctions pin should look. What is making you question that they're fake?

    Nothing is really sticking out to me. I saw a couple of the alarm clock pins selling on eBay at a really low price. One was from an individual that I believe sells fake pins. What did you see that made you suspicious?

    Daughter has the stitch skiing pin. Traded for it, so no chain to assure it is real. Just posting for comparison.

    FYI: I have never really questioned if this skiing stitch is real... Its a solid pin. The quality is excellent... So for what it is worth... I believe it is real. :)

    Note: the colors in my pin are a bit duller than the photo I just took with my phone camera. In particular the blues.

    Thanks, yes, the low price on the alarm clock made me suspicious, and the backs on some have corrosion and rough edges.

    Thanks. Yes the fronts do look really nice, but some of the backs have rough edges, and corrosion. The alarm clock price also made me suspicious.

    I think the corrosion is just a storage thing. I have a couple older pins, including auction pins, that I bought first hand myself that have similar issues.

    That's just how auctions backs look. If I got one with smooth edges I'd be more worried. The corrosion is just from age. You can help reduce it by cleaning it with some baking soda toothpaste. My Nouveau came with some corrosion and it cleaned right up.

    Interesting tip (the toothpaste). Thanks

    I have seen the alarm clock one on ebay over and over, so it has been faked. I have an authentic one, not sure how to post a picture here though :)

    Mine is in the original baggie with the original card for the alarm clock. There is no corrosion on the back, bright shiny gold. Without seeing them side by side I think the printing of mine is smaller, as in the words in the box are a smaller font. The gavels are also smaller with the disney in a smaller font. It is hard to tell. The colors on mine are more muted, not as bright a blue on stitch and the rug and the yellows are more golden than neon.
