Most people cannot tell the different between a diestruck pin and a diecast pin as they really can look exactly the same. Besides the difference in how they are made, die cast pins are the most expensive type of pin because of the production process.
Die cast pins come in all the same metal finishes: gold, silver, copper, black nickel, brass, and bronze. Die cast pins can also be antiqued. Die cast pins can be all metal finish, or they can be hard or soft enamel. You start to see how this can get confusing.
