Plastic badge -1

 

 

Plastic badge of Mao is a variety in Mao’s badges, it is not only simple in design, low in manufacturing equipment requirements, low in production costs, but it is of colorful, light weight, resistant to extrusion, easy to store and so on. Thus this variety of Mao’s badges is loved by the majority of the badge collectors and the majority of people of all ages. But just from the view of art collection, plastic badge is nowhere near as porcelain figurines in collection value. Not as aluminum badge as a broad mass base.

The end of 1967 to early 1968, the Cultural Revolution has reached a climax, production and distribution of the badges had reached a historical peak. At that time, in order to satisfy political needs,  the plastic badges had mass production.  Later, due to coming out of the large quantities of higher quality, vibrant large-scale aluminum and porcelain figurines badge, enamel badges, they overshadowed plastic badge which was becoming unpopular.  It is described as: “sunset is magnificent, it is almost dusk."   Circulation of  plastic badge was usually not large , plus the mandatory collection of this sort  by end  of " Cultural Revolution" , as well as natural wear and tear, after nearly 50 years of vicissitudes , plastic badge well preserved is very limited.

 

First, the main origin of the plastic badge

Origin of plastic badge was almost all over the country, was divergent, and there was not too well-known manufacturer of plastic badge, unlike porcelain figurines which origin was mainly concentrated in a few areas. In the view of  the collection,  there were a few  producers which were of relatively well-known,  Shanghai, Tianjin , Jinan, Suzhou and other places.

 

Second, the division of plastic badge

1, from the material: hard plastic, soft plastic , hard and soft combination and combination of plastic and metal. From 1968, there had been a fluorescence ( luminous ) badge . Soft plastic badge had been made through the film production process, often referred to as plastic film ( foam ) badge.

2, from coloration: mostly white background ( substrate ). Head pattern is divided into two major categories : color and monochrome. Color badge, though not as bright as porcelain figurines, but it is actually quite colorful. Monochrome badge, though not as clear in gradation to ceramic badge, but it is actually quite simple and generous. Color and gradation of plastic badge are lot less than the porcelain badge , but compared to aluminum badge, is more colorful and  from the viewing , it is still very enjoyable.

3, in the character modeling: head, bust, whole body; life like, picture in work, in military uniforms, uniform, in plain clothes; in a hat (military a cap and a straw hat ) , hat holding in hand.

4, in direction of the head: the left , the right, positive image.

 

Third, identification on plastic badge in quality

Based on years summed up the process of collection of plastic badge, there are 7 criteria:

1, the front, no fine bubbles or blisters, no the phenomenon of aging. Otherwise, defective products.

2, no large deformation, or out of shape. Otherwise, defective products.

3,  no cracks or defects, etc. Otherwise, defective products.

4, no a positive out of shape or pattern ; if there are pictures of   Shaoshan, Jinggangshan, Tiananmen Square and other auxiliary diagram at the bottom, the proportion of the main picture and auxiliary picture and color-coordinated  looks beautiful, comfortable, otherwise, defective products.

5, the front no fade or color cast . Otherwise , defective products.

6, if it is painted, then the pattern must be vivid, nice, otherwise, defective products.

7, writing  is clear and well-proportioned. Otherwise, defective products.

 

Fourth, judge for the plastic set badge, series badge, identification of badge.

Based on years of collection, summed up 9 criteria

1, must describe a central element, or a particular historical theme or a major historical event. For specially designed badges, for example : Mao on the Long March, Mao was 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, that means in different periods, Mao’s images. The signature on the back of the badge may be the national government or a provincial or People's Liberation Army troops, or a factory , or a sector.

2, set badge, series badge, the number must be at least three or more (including three ). The most I have ever seen for a set badge is  28, series badge  is 18 series.  Identification of badge is limited to two.

3, the materials used must be the same. If it is plastic, everyone must be made of plastic; if it is porcelain badge, all must be porcelain, and so on. As long as there is a badge made in different material, they could  not be called as set badge, series badge, identification of badge.

4, sets badge and  identification of badge, the back must follow the " six consistent ."  Namely: production ( release ) consistent, consistent with the text, text font are identical, the text location consistent, consistent pattern shape consistent, shape in sequence number consistent, if there are other tags, they must be consistent . Series badge is not strictly required .

5, set badge and  identification of badge, must have same  in production style for each of them. The so-called production style, referring to the idea of designers, techniques and characteristics to be consistent. Such as there is sun behind the head, or deputy pattern at the bottom of the badge protruding towards both sides, or have high relief portrait design, or the lower portion of the badge has a piece of Mao ‘s poetry, or, there is an inscription at the bottom, or at bottom there is a picture of place where Mao worked, there is a red flag on the back of the head, and so on . Series badge is not strictly required.

6, there is certain correlation for each one  of set badge among them in the contents. That is, previous badge and a badge after should mutually support on the content  or relying on the order of mutual relations. For example, according to Mao Zedong 's revolutionary sites,  5 badges of  set badge in 5, from first to fifth is in strict accordance with the time or historical events in order, these pictures are: Shaoshan, Jinggangshan, Zunyi, Yan'an, Tiananmen Square, one by one. Seven badges of 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, these pictures are: Shaoshan, First Conference of Communist Party, Jinggangshan, Gutian, Zunyi, Yan'an, Tiananmen Square. Series badge and Identification of badge is not strictly required.

7, set badge,  the shape to be consistent  in general. If it is round, each of set badge is circle, and so on. Allowing circle and other shape ( shaped, oval, round, etc. ) appear in combination, but overall consistency must be good, feels aesthetically pleasing appearance. Series badge and Identification of badge is not strictly required.

8, plastic set badge, there is no concept of the first among them. Unlike set badge in aluminum that usually have a head section ( leading badge ) , slightly larger than other, the design is unique as well.

9, The arrangements  for set badge must be in strict order.

 

series badge, identification of badge is not strictly required.

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 ."

In the author's collection of more than ten thousand pieces, only a handful of set badge. Only ten sets for series set.

Analyzing and judging set badge, series badge, identification of 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, identification, 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,  the series badge is follow, identification of badge is last.
