Opinions Welcome please

I got these two to stick in a frame. When they arrived I noticed they appear to have been chromed!

You can see on the back where the Wm is showing through.

What are your opinions on these 2?...

Highland Light Infantry Officer's OSB Collars for opinions

I got these today.

Initially I thought they were 2 unmatched pairs but when I received them I noticed 2 different KC, a QC and 1 what I think maybe QVC.

Can anyone confirm my thoughts please?
