This is a heavy gauge plastic with a cast white metal buckle, keeper and point.
This is a plain, white metal rim with a black leather piece partly set therein.The leather has stitching at the top edge with moth tracks and the pins at either end of the cantle are loose. The cantle is bent. There is a cast white metal thistle held in place by 3 corroded pins. The top of the sporran would be behind the leather.
This is a crudely cast example in what appears to be white metal however some of the plating has been rubbed off exposing what looks like brass! It is a central 'loggerhead' (leopard's face) within a circle with the title and a crown. This is within a wreath in the form of a pentagram of thistles. It has 2 corroded lugs at the rear. It is approx 65mm wide. May be pre 1952? No idea where this was/is worn. Unlikely to be cap badge, possibly sporran. No idea. Came with a selection of sporran parts.
This is unworn and is a white, horse hair tassle approx 22cm long with a taped end, white metal tip and 6cm long chain. The tape would need to be carefully removed before attaching to a sporran. A little more info: http://dkilts.com/product/black-horse-hair-kilt-sporran-with-two-white-tassels/
Stock photo. Qty 6 available, location shows sporran with 2 tassels but other sporrans show 3.

It has 3 screw posts at the rear without nuts and a leather shaped infill which has moth nibbles and grazing. The leather appears quite dry and white metal powder is evident. The top edge has dents.
