Gold Police Service Medal and NSDAP Long Service Medal: Authentic pieces? Where to find ribbons?
Hello, everyone! A family friend gave me these two medals for my beginning collection. He said that a vet had brought them back from the war. Apparently the first is a police medal, however I don't know for how long in the police this award was given. I also don't know about 2nd NSDAP medal for "long service." I researched them a bit and I think they are authentic but wanted to get confirmation since these medals look nice (and thus are copied frequently?) and also are not listed in the book I just purchased. I'm also curious if anyone knows of sites or places where I can find original ribbons to go with these.
Any help is great and thanks!

Both look good to me.
Police is 25 year long Service. NSDAP is 10 year Long service
