Default Tank Badge and case

I have a person interested in liquidating their collection.
It happens.
He has WW2 stuff that I would be interested in but with him, it's all or nothing, so I have to look at buying his WW1 badges also.
I know nothing about them.
Perhaps someone might look at these as I put them up and tell me if they are any good or not??
Thank you,
Tim

I don’t like the badge either. Fantasy!
Would love to see better pictures of the case.

Yes, the badge appears soft on the reverse so I'd guess a casting with a spurious maker mark. Pics of the case would definitely be worthwhile if it's an original for eg a flight badge.

Regards

These badges are a mystery to most collectors - including myself.
After some research on the topic two years ago it seemed to me that the examples with the "framed"grenades were all fakes.
On the other hand I never ran into this makers mark during my quest - maybe it´s a jewellers copy indeed. If the name would be in the case as well, we might have a different story....

Thank you for all of the replies.
I'll have to see how things develop with the owner.
