Hello!
Accroding to the words on them, I believe this to be a badge of a middle school in Shantou(汕头).

The characters are small and hard to read. Some are extremely difficult to make out. They are worn and do not have much contrast. My best guess.

The front of badge #2 reads from right to left: 集英學校 Jiying Xuexiao Jiying School
On the back it reads from left to right:
No. 45 證章 Zhengzhang Badge No 45 but one of the characters is hard to make out so it is a best guess
汕頭新馬 ?? Shantou Xin Ma and maybe Lu, Xin Ma Road, because that would make the most sense and the foot radical is visible.
南峰生然 Nan feng Sheng Ran

Badge #3 front reads from right to left: 集英校董 Jiying Xiao Dong which could mean Jiying School Director. The last character is hard to make out.

Jiying could be taken to mean 'to gather heroes'. I googled Jiying Xuexiao and there were several hits but none in Shantou.

Shantou is also known as Swatow and is on the coast in eastern Guangdong province

Yes it looks like some school badge...
