This is so useful! I've been collecting pins for a few years, and clicked what hidden mickey meant, but didn't realise the issues of counter-fitting behind them!
When I was new to pin trading I got quite confused about HMs. When I googled it there was no definitive answer. The article that Dreamingofdisney__ has written on scrappers and fakes is great. I think fakes are becoming more and more of an issue because some of the pins have such a high resale value.
This was an interesting read, thank you! I collect hidden Mickey pins but for me if I like it then I'm not bothered if it's genuine or fake. If I like it, I like it 🤣
We have a few fakes in our collection. When we were newer to pin trading it was hard to tell and honestly I didn’t realise that pins were faked as much as they are. I still like some of the fakes as we traded for them in parks and they have memories attached to them but know better now what to look for. The article linked here on spotting fakes that was written by Toby is really excellent!
This is so useful! I love hidden Mickey pins so much but I don’t trade for them as so are so often faked which is a shame
Thanks for saying so! It is such a shame that they have been ruined somewhat.
I love buying the mystery bags with the older hidden Mickey’s!
