They both look like officer service dress bronze collars to me. The shiny bits are probably buffed high spots,
Cheers,

The badges are chemically treated to be brown not just dirty.

Ok, you are right...and do yo know if can be original items or just restrikes or fakes?..and what era can be in case be autenthic? Thank you!

They are original. Period of use I think anything from WWI to modern.
Cheers,
Alex

I have a Buffs badge with the same sparkly bits in it, I think it may be a locally made badge and the sparkles are impurities in the cast metal.

Trubia26 11-10-20 06:09 PM

Well..I am happy because they are original (wathever the era belong to! ) thanks for your usefull help!
