    Maleficent HM portrait help (#102751)

    Hello! I just received this pin in a trade and was wondering if anyone had this pin and make a comparison for me. The trader had purchased it from a store that sells DLR items.

    Is the frame supposed to be covered in enamel? Only the round points protrude from the enamel.

    The back seems to have a border but maybe I'm crazy.

    There are no scrapper warnings on PP, so I'd appreciate some help 😊

    I think you're definitely safe, my is the same way and I bought it directly from the parks when I started trading.

    Whew! Thanks for the reply. The right side of the back has that border that ppl always talk about, so that def tripped me up.

    Lately I've noticed borders on a few pins that came directly from Disney.

    Ok good to know but that makes it confusing to determine scrappers!

    Wow I can totally see how you could think it could be a scrapper/fake/etc... those Mickey back stamps are crazy off!

    Yeah, the borders are starting to become less and less of a calling card of scrappers. But that printed number i usually a good sign.

    I've determined that it has to be a RAISED border, like a clear distinction where it's been cut off. I've seen several where the back just stops, like this one, from legit pins (I think I have one or two, and the ones it is on are definitely legit, bought from Disney itself).

    Thank you Merlin_Emrys for the BANNER! AHHH!
    My current goals!! Any help is super appreciated!!
