1969 MLBPA pin possible slabbing error

I was doing some research on 1969 MLBPA pins with vcp, and I came across the PSA 9 exemple sold in 2016. The pin looks like a 1980s reproduction often seen floating around. (1) the needle is too long and extends beyond the margin of the pin (2) the back of the pin is wrong - there is an inner silver rim which is not seen on the authentic versions(3) the authentic 1969 pins are stamped Winona MN 1969 mlbpa .

    Chris - that's definitely a 1983 reproduction. Hopefully the buyer recognized this and was able to void the sale.

    Hopefully- or maybe not- the pop report is likely defective because it shows - 1 PSA 9- none higher- this may be the item

    Aren't the pin or stick parts removable? Doesn't it say 1969 on the side
