    I recently dusted my old collection off and when looking through them found a pin that looks a little odd!
    I visited both Disney resorts between 10-15 years ago on numerous occasions and brought a few pins but don't remember doing much trading however, I must have due to this pin I've found!

    It looked a little odd to me; with pinpics down it's been hard on a newbie to find much info but I think its from DisneyStore Japan, part of a 'Walt 100 century' pin series. Other photos I have managed to find on google also look a little bit odd like mine.
    Wondering if anyone has this pin/can say if its a scrapper or legit. The back looks weird but also the back looks weird on two others I've found on google!
    Thanks :chip:[​IMG] [​IMG]

    This was from the Countdown to the Millennium series (the Fotoball backstamp gives that away, since as far as I know pins from this series were the only ones to have this stamp). They were sold through the Disney Store in 1999. I have not heard of any pins from this series being scrapped/faked, and this Mickey pattern is consistent with other pins from this series, so I am pretty confident in saying this pin is legit.

    I found that I can search for pins on pinpics as long as I don't try to log in, so I was able to find this on there:
