Often military badges when found are quite cruddy and bent so don't look too good but can often be quite transformed into something perhaps even worthy of display after some annealing and a going over with brass brush.

Before and after!

I've got a couple of bent old badges that I've been quite happy to leave as they are because they don't do a lot for me. But now...

Great job, that man :thumbsup:
