Hello everyone, so me and my two kids are very new to pin collecting. We started buying online this spring and then had our first trading trip this June in WDW and it was so much fun. In just a few short months, we are all in and have a collection of a few hundred pins between us. So I have couple of newbie questions. They are probably dumb questions, but I just want to make sure I understand what I'm looking at. When some pins say they are from Disney Auctions, what does that mean? I can see that they are very low run limited editions, and can get quite expensive, but what is Disney Auctions? And does it still happen? Are pins being released still under this banner? What is Propins - Germany? I see this a lot on Pinpics. Are these authentic Disney pins or are they like Box Lunch where it's a separate manufacturer who produces Disney pins? My collection is almost all full body images of characters (just reached 200 in that collection). I'm trying to stick with one pin per character, although I've gotten a few others of my favorite characters. I'm trying to limit it to just the full body ones without any background, words, etc. Are there a name for these type of pins? I thought I saw it somewhere when I first started collecting/researching. Thank you to anyone who can provide some answers for a struggling newbie.
