Accused of being counterfeits,

these pins are on the

PTBI's Top Ten List of most

"NOT! WANTED" for trading.

The Pin Traders' Bureau of Investigation has reported that these notorious pins have been recently spotted on lanyards and in pin books at Disney parks. These pins are accused of impersonating authentic Disney pins, and they are spreading like wildfire. Be careful when approaching these pins as they are often accompanied by a convincing story to make you believe they are real Disney pins. You might have traded for one and not even known it was a bootleg pin. Pin Traders are asked to keep their eyes open and alert their friends and fellow traders when these pins are in the area.
