Default SAS badges real or fake

Here is three cap badges that I would like to check out.
I have no clue whether they are good ones or not and wish to have opinion of more knowledgeable collectors.
Having said that I would not be surprise they are fakes...

Hi,
Which Canadian connection? I did no mention that: should there be a connection?
I am just asking whether some of those are good one or fake.
Another opinion?

Although you don't mention anything about the origin of the badges in your original question, It's listed in the Canadian Military Insignia section of the Forum so I anticipate that's why Frank asked his question. Sorry I cannot help with your original question

Hi
The other two look to be 1980s Private purchase.
Just my opinion.
Cheers

Now I understand,
silly me I inadvertently put in the wrong section. I apologize for this.
Is there any way I could change that?

Does the fact that, on the second badge, the scroll has got more fold and link with the wing shows a specific maker or age?

Hi
I am no expert , but double checking , I would believe first on is a blatant fake , second is issued post 1950s has stitching throughout centre of blade , early ones have single notch, third I believe is early 80s private purchase , due to backing.
Dating these is a minefield....put some of my own here and got zero response.
Hopefully others will put their more knowledgeable expertease in .
Cheers
Steve

Hi
Thank you again, your help is very much appreciated.
A minefield indeed: it is quite discouraging really.
I hope I will get hold of a good WWII version.
