|This is the second DLR Champion Cast Award Tinker Bell pin I've seen on EBay, dated 2/28/05, that I suspect is a fake. I've compared my original #31685 pin with the Ebay picture and noticed the following discrepencies.|
If you look at the words "PIN TRADER", you'll notice the letters, "I, N, & T" in Tinker Bell's wings, are colored green. In the original, #31685, they are not colored but show the gold base metal. Also, take note of the bottom portion of the letters "C, H, P, & I" , in "CHAMPION". They are colored darker then the original.
The 1st Champion pin trader I suspected was a red version of the original #23811. This one also had the letters "I, N, & T" colored. Whereas the original does not have this coloring.
