Just picked up a nice small poppy pin , no idea where/when it is from but it is a similar style to a "doggy" one (war dogs/PAWS/dog handler ?) I found in 2019.

At first glance it looked genuine , right size and plain back , but on very close inspection I am sure it is a fake. I have personally seen and handled four 2006 pins , have also seen and handled at least a dozen other early dated (2007-2010) pins and they are all identical so I'm sure this isn't a genuine one.
Plenty of bidders , so price shot up but someone is going to get a surprise /shock when it arrives.

This is the first time I have spotted such a “good” fake and worry that more will start appearing on eBay.

As they say - "Buyer Beware" !
A second fake 2006 poppy pin has just gone for £102 + £2.99 postage !

There is a third one with starting bid at £30.00 which finishes tomorrow.

I'm guessing there is a batch of them around and more will start to appear , a lot of people are going to end up disappointed and out of pocket.
