If you check my profile you will see there's a problem with my badges.

There where it shows the Gravatar and reputation, it says I have 15 badges. But here where it shows what badges I have it only says I have 14. How many do I really have? Why does it show two different counts?

    You have 14 different badges and custodian badge twice.

There are two different counts here: you have 14 unique badges and 15 bronze badges in total. You earned the Custodian badge twice.

Note that if you start earning silver or gold badges, their counts will be displayed separately under your gravatar.

Take a look at my profile for a larger contrast, making it easier to see the difference; I have (20 gold + 239 silver + 389 bronze =) 648 badges in total, but only 149 unique badges.
