    Set #65943 from pinpics (Mickey and pals as various Haunted Mansion characters) says in the description that the pins can't be trusted unless you bought them from Disney, but nothing else. Has anyone here actually seen fakes of any of these, and can tell me what to look for? Also, does anyone have an authentic pin from this set, and can post a photo of the back or describe it? Thanks!

    I always appreciate seeing fakes as I'm terrible at spotting them.

    I was trying to think what set it was, so here is a picture:

    Oh yeah I remember that set. I saw a lot of the Minnie, the Pete and Daisy (I think?) on lanyards as fakes. Too many and off colored as I vaguely recall.

    A few of the other pairs maybe too. It's been a while!

    I seem to recall scrappers of Minnie, Mickey & Minnie dancing, and Daisy.

    Thank you for posting the pic! I was on my phone and couldn't attach one.

    I've also seen fakes of the Minnie.
