    The very most you should do is wash them carefully with luke warm soapy water and use an old soft brush toothbrush. HOWEVER, don't do this on anything like those pith helmets sheilds as the paint can easily flake off.

    Never ever polish them!

    Cheers, Ade.

    All look good from what I can see there?

    The only one I do have real concerns about is the SS-ZA stick pin. Please show the back to that one please.

    Cheers, Ade.
