Default lots of unknowns?

Hi for a start would like to ask if any of these Three are any good or if Copies Restrikes?

Then I would like to know if this Crown is Dutch, or Belgium and its use? Is it even Military? (Looks like it?)

Many thanks Billy

Well billy , I will go for the easy one, the first is a fake, I don’t even think it’s a copy, as I don’t think there’s a real one out there.

The Seaforths is all brass which has me thinking it is wrong? But hopefully just another variant? Hopefully thiscwill be confirmed one way or another?

It's not British if it is ok, maybe Canadian.

I don't like the accountants badge, generally doesn't look right to me.

The Corps of Military Accounts badge is a cast copy in my opinion.

No idea what the Seaforth’s badge is but the cherry red lug isn’t a good sign for there being much age to it.

Thanks all, the Seaforths am happy as a Sporan badge, Luke lugs aren't that bright, it was under a light source (wife doing a jigsaw and late at night!), 1st had as bad and Corps of accountants am sure is Silver - W/M at least!

All the best billy
