Not one there that I would buy. The welsh may be OK but hard to tell.

The wide wreath Cameronians has been heavily restruck from the original die, yours is a restrike.

The 1916 all Gm Welsh looks OK, slider is possibly a replacement unless it’s the acute angle of your pic

The 25th London Cyclist Bn would have originally had an extruded slider and is of WW1 vintage, the N-S soldered loops are a later repair.

The Wm Royal Scots is not an original.

The Royal Engineers Volunteers badge is a fake, it’s a Marsh knock-off of an officers waist belt clasp centrepiece.

As Dean says the British American Squadron is a restrike.

Your Royal Dragoons looks like this genuine version but I’d need a front photo from a less acute angle to be sure.

The Royal Dragoons looks to be an unused genuine badge in my opinion.
