    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 😊

    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).

    My current goals!! Any help is super appreciated!!
