    I was looking through my collection and I noticed a few pins that seem off to me. Are any or all of these 3 pins scrappers, or am I just paranoid haha?

    Not 100% sure, but each of those sets has been counterfeited.

    I would be suspicious of your Genie Tee shirt, as the mickey head has a smushed/wide look to it, something I was told can be a hallmark of fakes.

    Weight and rough edges are two significant tests I do... also how thick they are. Basically its difficult to know from pictures.
    But if you like the pins, enjoy them. I have a whole set of scrapped villain bowling pins I love for the memories and its a cute set.

    The edges aren't too bad, but I can tell the metal is different. At the time I thought it was because the pins were old. But you're right if I like them who cares :) I really just wanted to know before I decided to trade them.
