The FAC# is stamped on last, so it's hard to copy it exactly. Some traders keep their backer cards and pair them with pins they don't have backer cards to (I.e. possibly fake pins, possibly not). The number has to be exactly the same to be a match for the pin/pin set. It's a fair thing to ask your trader about, since they said they had the backer card for it and that's not the backer card.Well, my card has an FAC number, but it is not the same as the number on the pin. It kind of looks like the number on the back of your card FAC 046730…..
Yes my pin does have a price tag and it also has the FAC number printed on the back of the card. I am adding photos but myI would like to know if your real pins had price tags on them. Also, is what Chusaurus said true? Should the FAC number be printed on the back of the backer card. Thanks.
Thanks for another great tip on spotting WDI fakes!My Yzma looks fake (because it is) but there were dips and scratches all in the clear enamel. The biggest tell would be if you could shine a light on the back of the backer card and see if the FAC# is printed on there, because fake cards don't have it printed and a non-matching card would be another indicator.
It's also not a good indicator if the plastic baggie doesn't have the barcode on it.

You're correct. I think it's for factory batches, so if they made the pins in the same batch, they all have the same FAC#Btw for those FAC numbers, I noticed that sometimes pins from the same series have the same numbers? Am I wrong?
