I have these original ones on my R51/3 tank, horrible condition.
Is there anyone out there who can renew them?

To restore them you need to

To restore them you need to have a proper oven (hotter than a household) and proper meltable enamel crystals etc. it can be done and I’m hoping someone takes on the job as there are thousands of broken badges in this world. Chance to get rich. In the absence of replacing the glasslike enamel (cloisonné) I would suggest buying replacement emblems online that have intact enamel(avoid the new ones as they have chrome ) and using techniques shown on YouTube copperplate the metal parts. You will save money by replacing them unless you chose to purchase all the stuff needed to replace the glass/enamel that has chipped out.
