Neil, I don't see any problem with them, except maybe he second ATS badge that has some solid areas instead of being cut out. Have never seen anything like that before, so can't say about it.

Andy, what tells us the Life Guards is a fake. I have one and not sure if it's a good one or not, nor what to look for.

Thank you gentlemen! How can I tell a good one from a bad one, as I have found lots. Some are so bad there is no doubt, but others I am not sure of?

Anybody have a spare?

I do not think it is a pathfinder eagle as I have only seen them as just the eagle, and very often pinback. Haven't done RAF in many years so I am sure there are better minds here to clarify for you....
