<script type="text/javascript">  
var X = Backbone.Model.extend({  
defaults: {   
name: "", 
id:""
}  
});   
var Coll = Backbone.Collection.extend({  
model: X    
});  
$(function(){  
var names = new Coll();   
names.set([
{name: "Joy", id: 10},  
{name: "Happy", id: 10},  
{name: "Smiley", id: 20}    ]);  
var Y = names.findWhere({id:10});
