    All look like good original medals to me.

    Here is a good site which shows originals and in some cases, like the France & Germany Star, compares them to repros:

    Hi,
    There is nothing wrong with those medals all original, do you have the other six stars in the set. If so i would like to see them not many have the complete set, They look great mounted for display.
