Waffling in Disney Pins
Waffling on Disney Pins
When you hear a pin trader talking about waffling, what they mean is the repeated design imprinted on the back of the majority of official Walt Disney pins.
Not all pins have waffles
Not all official pins have waffling, some, like the recent batch of Haunted Mansion pins, have no waffling but are official Disney pins and can be traded as such.
Waffling can be missing or broken on fake pins
Having just said that not all official pins have waffling doesn't mean that you shouldn't keep an eye out for the waffling. A lot of fake pins will look pretty darn close to real from the front but will have some give away signs on the back.

Waffling can be a problem at DLP as when I took some traders with me, some cast members will only swap ones with the waffling on the back.(I had loads without waffling as they were quite old pins)
This is great to know, thanks!
Ironically I've seen plenty of pins come out of DLP that are brand new and have poor waffling on the back, like it doesn't go to the edges.
I think it's hard for them to do tbh. Unfortunately it's difficult to tell between genuine & fake. Personally I'm not bothered if I get a fake because I like the pin for the pin & not because it's a genuine.
