Default Help with Teardrop restoration

Hello,
I'm about to rewrap a set of orphan Teardrops. This is my first time working with these drums, and I was wondering about the best way to remove the badges without damaging them? Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks.

I used a very small thin screwdriver to pry the spit ends up and then pinched them together with some needle nose pliers. Once together the little nail should slide right out.

Good luck, Gary
