Actually, to achieve a Domed shape Soldiers used brush handles, these had a rounded end, badge placed above - gently tapped with wooden (Let's call it a stave?) This stretched the metal to give a domed appearance, why no damage to badge? could be a thin piece of material used to prevent such, no different to what is still done today.
