To identify the authenticity of the badge, you can learn from the four methods of 'seeing, smelling, asking, and cutting' in traditional Chinese medicine for 'diagnosis'.

1. 'Hope'

Ie observe the natural coating, enamel coating, baking varnish effect, electroplating luster, background pattern, text characteristics, etc. on the surface of the badge Wait. The authentic badge has positive enamel color, bright paint, excellent adhesion, high temperature resistance and corrosion resistance. The fake badge is painted with paint, which is natural and quick-drying and solidifies. The paint surface has lamination marks, the color gloss is poor and too bright, and the paint film is easy to peel off after a long time. The depth, lightness and thickness of the electroplating layer on the surface of the badge are also important basis for distinguishing authenticity.

2. 'Wear'

It means to get knowledge from books and media, or to consult expert collectors for appraisal, or Compare with the same badge and so on. At present, dozens of books on badge appreciation have been published, such as 'Chinese Badges' and 'Badges and Their Collection'. In recent years, dozens of professional websites such as 'Badge Network' and 'Mao Zedong's Stamp Collection Network' have also appeared. Collectors can learn about relevant knowledge and market conditions, which will help improve their ability to identify.

3. 'Ask'

refers to understanding the ins and outs of the badge, historical background, design style, aesthetic principles, process methods, production process, etc. Every badge, especially the early badge production and distribution, is based on certain historical events. Except for a few hand-made badges, the process flow of machine-made badges is roughly as follows: design pattern-mold opening-mold repair-blank selection-stamping stamp blank-electroplating-enamel (or paint)-pin up-packaging. Although the varieties of badges are very different, their crafting methods are similar.

4. 'Cut'

refers to identification from badge material and density. The most important process for making badges is stamping stamp blanks. The larger the tonnage of the punching machine, the higher the density of the badge produced, and the higher the smoothness and smoothness of the front and back sides of the badge. The early badges were mostly made of copper. Due to the low hardness of the material and strong plastic deformation, the steel mold was used for gravity stamping. The concave and convex indentations on the front and back of the badge were especially obvious, and the inscription was exceptionally clear. Some fake badges use advanced silicone molding technology, that is, the stamp of authenticity is embossed on the silicone to replicate the model. After chemical treatment, the silicone is as hard as steel and becomes a mold. The badges forged with silicon molds are very similar in appearance, but their texture is fundamentally different from the real ones.
