    For anyone that owns a Paris Pin Trading Nights pin...

    Can you tell me if the LE number (the xxx/400 number) is super imposed on the pin? Like in this picture

    Yes, but some of these pins have been counterfeited.

    And some were directly imprinted onto the pin without that little metal plate...so it would depend.

    An experienced pin seller/trader told me that you can tell the scrapper by the front, actually.

    I heard that, hence the question. The front of this pin looks pretty good. But again, I am only seeing photos. Appears to have original packaging and the SKU matches.

    Arg, I hate buying online. Hahaha

    Here's what a fake engraving looks like. Hope it helps.[​IMG]

    For some reason, I can't see the photo.

    Are you at work? My work place blocks some web sites.

    Here's several real engravings from different years:[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    They all are pretty crisp and clear in the numbering unlike my previous picture.
