    The Soviet medal is for the "Victory Over Germany in the Great Patriotic War 19411945." I believe it is authentic, and it appears to have it's original WWII era vintage suspension (these were commonly replaced once they wore out/ became damaged/ the ribbons got dirty). However, I fear that you paid too much for it. About 15,000,000 of them were produced... and they are not particularly rare or expensive.

    I agree with Jerry on the EK I. The markings on the screwback are found on Polish made fakes.
    The medal looks like it could be OK, but please post clear pics of it in the relevant section for better opinions.

    Text on the fake match book cover makes absolutely no sense either

    Items that look too new are a first sign of walking away for me. I pick them up and examine them, always, but that's a first sign for me.
    As Adrian has pointed out " Newness " is not the best way to make an assessment on originality , you need to learn the things that make it a correct item or not as the case may be !!
