Old Euro Disney Pins
« on: May 28, 2010, 11:32:43 AM »
I often surf through the disney pins on ebay looking out for any from our beloved DLRP. But lately I have noticed an increase in pins listed as EuroDisney *rare* pins. I bought a couple and all look/feel genuine with stamps on the back etc, but I still remain supect of them as they have all of a sudden started apearing on Ebay 'en mass and I can't ever remember seeing them before!

A picture of such 2 pins





I was hoping that perhaps some one using the forum had a better idea about whether these are the real deal or not and even are they worth collecting compared to the more modern badges?

Thanks
Alice :)

There were several different sets of free pins before EDL opened up in 1991/1992. If I remember right, these were the Esso ones (I have all these plus the kodak ones too). They are great for Disney historians like me, and one day they may be valuable, but cast members will not trade them.

If I remember, the EuroDisney one was on sale the first year (again, not cloisonee, so not tradeable). And the WDW Disneyana was a free one for people who went to the Disneyana fan conference which was not an official Disney event.

I hope that helps you decide.

Have also noticed a lot of these pins on E-bay. We have recently started a DLRP bag and each page has a land and its relevant pins. Finding people willing to trade is proving a challenge. So we have been buying from E-Bay and so far all of our pins have been genuine.
We are hoping that there will be some new Captain Eo pins released now that it's back in the park. We love that show and have been watching it on You Tube.

Have traded one from our local DS and the cast members there didn't seem too worried about such an old pin being on the lanyard. Then again most of them don't really know their pins.

Have a Disney day

Wendy

I have that Frontierland Goofy one.  I bought it in DLP either 1992 or 1993.  So that one at least is a genuiene one (unless someone has found a way to copy the old ones and sell them for real copies).

I got the round, red Kodak Frontierland pin with Goofy on it. I got that pin at WDW from a CM in EPCOT. He asked us where we come from, because he heared us speaking German. After a little conversation about WDW we told him that we have been to DLRP before. Then he showed me the Kodak pin and he asked me if I want to trade it for a Mickey pin. Of course I did.
