Mao’s badge, particularly worthy of collection, but also the most valuable, first is Set badge, followed by Series badge, and then followed with different color badge  in same version, and finally Pair of badges.

 

Criteria for Set Badge

Based on years of collection, summed up 9 criteria in judgment of Set badge:

1, Set badge consists of a few specially designed badges which must describe a central element, or a particular historical theme or a major historical event, For example : Mao on the Long March, Mao’s image in different periods, Mao received the Red Guards, forever faithful to Chairman Mao, Mao Zedong’s image from youth to middle age to old age. The signature on the back of the badges may be the national government or a provincial or People's Liberation Army troops, or a factory, or a sector.

2, The number must be at least three or more (including three ) , usually about 10, There is 28 pieces for a Set badge I have ever witnessed.  It is said that most one has 34 pieces for a Set badge.

3, The materials used must be the same. If it is made of aluminum, each of them must be made of aluminum. If it is made of porcelain, all must be made of porcelain, and so on. As long as there is only one badge made in different material, whole lot is not considered as Set badge. Someone brought a pack of badge to judge.  They looked as if each of these badges meet the standard for Set Badge; but, some of them made of aluminum, some other of plastic (This difference could not be recognized without checking carefully), obviously they were not a Set badge.

4, The back of each in Set badge must follow the " six consistent ."  That means: production organization ( release agency ) consistent, consistent with the text, text font are identical, the text location consistent, pattern shape consistent, shape in sequence number consistent, if there are other tags, they must be consistent.

5, Each of Set badge must have same style in production. So-called production style, referring to the idea of designers, techniques and characteristics, all these should be consistent. Such as there is sun as background behind the head image, or deputy pattern at the bottom of the badge protruding towards both sides, or have high relief portrait design, or at lower portion of the badge there is a piece of Mao ‘s poetry , or, there is an inscription at the bottom, or at bottom there is picture of site where Mao worked, there is a red flag on the back of the head as background , and so on.

6, There is certain correlation among each one in Set badge in the contents. That is, previous badge and a badge after should mutually support on the content or relying on each other on the order. For example, according to Mao Zedong 's revolutionary sites,  5 badges of  a Set badge in 5, from first to fifth is in strict accordance with order of the time or historical events. Order of these sites are: Shaoshan, Jinggangshan, Zunyi, Yan'an, Tiananmen Square, one by one. Seven badges of a set badge in 7, from the first to the seventh is strictly in accordance with the order of the time or the order of historical events. Order of these pictures are: Shaoshan , First Conference of Communist Party, Jinggangshan, Gutian, Zunyi, Yan'an, Tiananmen Square.

7, The modelling should be consistent. In general, if it is round, each of Set badge should be circle, and so on. Allowing circle and other shape (profiled, oval, round, etc.) appear in combination, but overall consistency must be good, feels aesthetically pleasing appearance.

8, There is a head badge (leading badge), slightly larger than other, the design is unique as well.

9, The arrangements of Set badge must be in strict order.

 

For some Set badge, in conformity with other standards, while not necessarily require full compliance with the “six consistent”, but at least required to achieve the "three consistent.”

 

Among the author's collection of more than ten thousand pieces, there are only a dozens of Set badge.

Analyzing and judging Set badge is advanced stage in the collection, collation, research of Mao Zedong badge, but also best stage for economic benefits and highest stage of market popularity.  Collection, judgment, arrangement of Set badge are the most difficult. A pack of badges which is lack of one is not considered as Set badge. Set badge’s requirement is the most stringent. Meanwhile, collection, judgment, arrangement of Set badge also is the best way to measure the knowledge level of collectors.
