Teach you to identify the authenticity of the badge
To identify the authenticity of the badge, you can learn from the four methods of "seeing, smelling, asking, and cutting" of Chinese medicine for "diagnosis." Shared by design Medal supplier.
1. The "looking"
That is to observe the badge surface natural coating, enamel coating, baking effect, plating gloss, background patterns, character and so on. Genuine insignia enamel color, bright paint, excellent adhesion and resistance to high temperature, corrosion and other characteristics. Fake badge is painted with paint, natural quick drying and curing, the paint surface has overlapping traces, the color gloss is too bright, long paint film is easy to peel from the layer. Badge surface plating depth, light and shade, thickness is also an important basis for identifying authenticity.
2. The "smelling"
That is, wide knowledge of the rich, or from the book and magazine media to obtain relevant knowledge, or to expert collectors consultation identification, or use the same badge for comparison and so on. So far, dozens of books on badge appreciation have been published, such as "Chinese badge", "badge and its collection". In recent years, there are also dozens of professional websites, such as "badge net" and "MAO zedong badge collecting net", from which collectors can learn about relevant knowledge and market conditions, which will be helpful for improving screening ability.
3. The "asking"
Refers to the understanding of the insignia of the context, historical background, design modeling, aesthetic principles, technology, production process. Every badge, especially the early ones, is based on historical events. With the exception of a few hand-made badges, the process flow of the mechanism badges is generally as follows: design drawing -- opening mold -- repairing mold -- selecting blank -- stamping seal blank -- electroplating -- enamel (or baking paint) -- attaching pin -- packaging. Although the varieties of badges vary greatly, their techniques are much the same.
4. The "cutting"
Refers to the badge material, density for identification. The most important process of badge making is stamping stamp blank. The higher the tonnage of punching machine, the higher the density of the badge, and the higher the smoothness and smoothness of the front and back of the badge. Early badges are mostly made of copper, due to the material hardness is low, plastic deformation is strong, using steel die by gravity stamping, the front and back of badges concave and convex indentation is particularly obvious, inscription is particularly clear. Some fake badges, using advanced silicone mold technology, that is, the real seal on the silicone imprint copy mold, after chemical treatment, silicone as hard as steel, into a mold. The badge, forged with a silicon mold, is essentially different in texture from the real thing, although it looks very similar in appearance.
