Default various cap badges an some cloth

I have a few badges that I suspect of being restrikes and some cloth that I don't have a good feeling over.
May I please have your opinions on these:

Irish guards looks to have some ind of varnish layer over it?

Coldstream guards

Scots guard

Royal northumberland fusiliers: there is a thin line between A-T-A of Fata. a die fault meaning it is a restrike?

Royal horse guards and The life guards: both not of great quality so restrikes?

RAMC: horrific quality! restrike or Sand-cast?

some cloth titles.
The life guards might be an original I am not sure on that one, the others are not ww2 or fakes in my opinion.

30th corps is printed on the wrong material, And a modern fake.
the RAMC I feel the same over, I don't think it is an original mint example but a modern fake.

With the cloth, the Life Guards could be modern issue; RHG modern repro.

The printed RAMC is modern repro - it's very close, but not quite there; the letters are the right typeface but seem to me to be just a tiny bit too thick. The 30 Corps is modern repro as well.

Staffsyeoman thank you for the comment.
The RAMC title is indeed a bit thicker then the originals.

Any comments on the metal cap badges maybe?

I saw a Northumberland fusiliers badge on this forum with the similar die fault and it was thought to be an original one.
