    Real vs Fake

    Does anybody know of a good, fairly easy way to tell if a pin is genuine and not faked? I bought about 75 or so pins back in 2012 off of a mix of EBay and Etsy. I've only recently learned that some people make fake pins. I was just curious as to how I could tell the real ones from the fake. I have so many and I'd hate to think that some aren't the real thing. But back to the question. Does anyone know how to tell whether a pin is real or fake?

    If you do an internet search there are a few pages that go over this in detail and I even saw a you tube video when I searched.

    So things to look for is : quality of pin and colors, does it have the rubber closure, is disney stamped on back(molded), I think they have a serial number.

    Thank you so much! I'll definitely look for those. I appreciate your help.
