    To me it looks like a nice set! Here is my example to compare the obverse

    Interesting Nick, your example doesn't have the flashing removed around the shoulders of the adler. I guess there must be several makers of the "Prinzen' clasp. My example here is unmarked.

    I believe these are original although I know nothing about the case. I also believe this set has been put together, the spange appears to have been used at one time due to the condition of the prongs but the ribbon has no holes in it.
    There are a few makers of the prinzen spange, here is a thread on makers of spange and prinzens.

    Here is my example of one made by Deumer.

    Very nice! Slightly different in head construction to my example which must lead me to believe my example is not a Deumer?

    I first thought it was Glenn, but noticed the difference in the head. There are also differences in the claws I believe.
