Default Tank Corps cap badge opinions

Hi all

I was hoping to pick up a genuine TC cap badge as a gift and have found 3 potential options. It would be great to hear your expert opinions on wether they are genuine or restrikes/copies. If anyone knows any genuines for sale too, that would be great.

I have tried to keep an eye on details like the slider being attached to the tank scroll, detail on the crown and the dreaded spanners!

Thanks
AR

Shame about the 2nd one could be a nice badge if cleaned to stop long term problems already showing signs of verdigris
