    elizabeths…

    I have been reading up on interpreting the symbolism of the Chinese rank badges, and I have 2 questions:

    1. Photos 1 and 2~ I think this is a 5th rank civil badge ( pheasant with 5 tail feathers) worn by a female. Is this correct?

    2. Photos 3 and 4~I have not found a badge like the ones shown here. Does anybody recognize it?

    Thank you in advance!~ :)
