When and if hopefully the badges show up the majority of the badges need a brass machine screw soldered to the back to mount them on the cage.  The original Diehl and ECK badges were thinly stamped brass with a machine screw soldered to the back, with them being concave the arc allowed the screw head to be hidden within the badge.  The cast badges are flat and do not allow the screw head to be hidden and cause the badge to protrude from the cage.  If the bolt is ground almost flat it reduces the protrusion.  The other solution would be to drill and tap the badge and insert a machine screw with the head cut off thus eliminating any protrusion .
