Billy,

The RA Territorials OSD cap badge is in my opinion a poor fake.

The badge is from a very worn die, the laurel spray almost disappearing its that worn.

Bearing in mind all these TF badges were made over a hundred years ago they were of very good quality and as you suspect 99% solid backed.

The rear of the other looks chemically aged also.

regards

I believe this badge to be OK.

Yes thats OK, probably a bronze painted version rather than solid bronze, but original for sure.
