    I have two Ariel pins (Pinpics 31438). They look nearly identical. One is glossier than the other. My concern is with the "Anti-spin" post next to the main pin. On one it is located on the right side at about 3 o'clock. On the other it is located on the lower left at about 7 o'clock.

    Is this cause for concern? If so, which one is likely the fake (my gut would say 7 o'clock is the fake, only b/c it is not horizontal...then again the 3 o'clock is not perfectly horizontal (maybe closer to 3:30)

    Thank you for your thoughts

    Do you have any pictures? Some authentic pins do not have the anti-spinner bump at all, and I bet there is no standard for where the anti-spin post might be located - but I am not sure.
    It can be very confusing. :)

    Ok, I don't have both pins with me (I'm away for a few months, so it'll be a while before I can post the pics).

    It would also be good to note if the pin was ever reprinted. Sometimes reprints are slightly different.
