Grenadier Guards with tangs/blades is likely to be Danbury Mint. Although most badges in the set were produced in anodised aluminium some were made in metals to reflect the issue item. The Grenadier Guards have had a gilding metal issue badge since the late 1960s.

Danbury Mint album here https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...p?albumid=1177

Machine Gun Guards broached might be ok, the others are fake. Im not keen on the Coldstream Guards pager badges.
