From my digging/speaking with the other individual, I've come up with two possible scenarios: 1) We've both been duped. That for some reason, reproductions or scrappers of this pin are showing up right now and Why this is likely: * the pin is totally different EDIT: even the line art is different * the quality is not consistent in some places I.e. the edging on the back of mine) Confounding variable: * the seller this other person bought from he trusts 100% and has bought NUMEROUS LE 100 DA pins from * the other buyer bought his pin because he used the image as my listing as his ISO * the sources people have been getting these pins from seem legit - but no one has bought one of these variations directly from Disney. 2) This is a prototype pin Why this is likely: * The base colors of this pin match really well, and the pin is very heavy. * It's rough around the edges, and the glue wasn't precise, so it was never intended to be a final product - just to give a general idea * If it WAS an error pin, then they wouldn't have completed it all the way (i.e. put the holographic logo on) or had multiples (we have three occurrences so far) Confounding variable: * Aren't PP's and Protoypes made on black metal? * DA pins WERE scrapped years after their original release. Conclusion (editors after discussion): The mold is different based off of the line work. It's subtle, but once you see it (look at Tink's neck) it's hard to stop finding differences. The lines in my pin are not as crisp and overextend I some areas, indicating that someone traced the image instead of drawing them. It is possible this was a very early run, and they just went with a re-design. But in my gut, my version looks traced. And if it was, then this pin was never intended for circulation, and clearly isn't of as high quality as the original.
