    Some guy told me the first one is like a "medal for bravery". Anyone know what war this is from? I thought it was from WW2 but the guy told me this could also be from afghanistan?

    It is the Bravery Medal. You can date these by the serial number. They are researchable too. I think this one will date to 1945 at a rough estimate going by the serial number.

    To read more about it, see here:

    Cheers, Ade.

    Research can be done, but it costs between $60 and $100.

    Here is a link for research:

    By the way, medal 4 has an incorrect ribbon. It should be the same as those on 6 & 7.

    yes the ribbon of medal 4 is incorrect , this is modern ribbon from Russian Medal for 50th Anniversary of Victory over Germany
