    The silver one is from the anschluss of austria and the golden/copper colored one is from the annexation of the sudetenland. They look ok to me!

    All three awards appear to be authentic, and in very good condition. The ribbons are definitely originals, with scalloped edges indicating the correct weave.

    I wouldn't like to confirm originality from these pics but they do look as if they have a good chance.
    The "13 Marz 1938" is the Austrian Anschluss medal (Die Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 13. Marz 1938) and the "1 Oktober 1938" is the Sudetenland annexation medal (Die Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938) which alog with the Memellandes Medaille (Medaille zur Erinnerung an die Heimkehr des Memellandes; 22. März 1939) are known as the "Flower war" medals. The third is as you say a "West Wall" medal (Deutsches Schutzwall-Ehrenzeichen). The flower war medals are all copied to varying degrees and I think the West wall medal probably is too though I can't recall seeing any. To be sure of these three you would need better "straight on" and close up images although I think they are likely good and someone who specialises in these particular medals might be willing to judge on these pics.

    I hope this helps.

    Regards
