Default R F C insignia

Hi, I would appreciate your help.
The photos show a few R F C insignia that I purchased a number of years ago.
I would appreciate evaluation with regard to authenticity or the lack thereof.
I realize the photos are not the best, so if you would like photos of individual pieces please just ask.
Thank you
Mike

Hi
In my opinion from the poor photos ...the RFC wing looks correct, both shoulder titles also look period.
The cap badges , if they have a notch under crown ?? May be copies....would need better pics to confirm.The one on right looks suspect when your pic is enlarged.
Like anything to be 100% you need clear pics.
Regards
Steve

Default R F C insignia

Thank you very much for your expertise. I knew the photos were poor, I should have retaken them.
Attached are new photos of the badges.
By the way, neither badge has the ‘bridge above the F which is indicative of a restrike. I did look at numerous threads but was was unsure of mine, thus the posting.
My thanks and Merry Christmas
Mike

Thank you very much. I really value your opinion.
Do you need better photos of the wing and shoulder title to confirm your original opinion?
Happy New Year.
Mike
