Mailio, first welcome to the Bundeswehr sub section of the forum, the place where 1957 awards are shown discussed and evaluated......The set you have been offered is a bargain, I would say snap it up ! The set, which is all original,comprises a double ribbon bar for six awards, a mini chain for social wear on a civilian dinner jacket, a post war DSB (Deutsches Sports Bund) sports badge in Gold and a bronze grade Close Combat clasp, all in good condition and all are desirable awrds, a great start to a collection of 1957 regulation awards/medals !
As for spotting fakes, see this sub section for tips and advice, especially here 57er Fakes ..............
Prost ! Steve.
