    Default Help identifying these four medals?

    I recently acquired these four medals. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify them, and then point out any things that may suggest it's a counterfeit? The reason I have questions about the authenticity is that the ribbons are so new. The green medal is also made of really light feeling metal, I feel if I press hard enough I may be able to bend it. I was told it was not a military war medal, but a civilian war medal, so maybe they saved on the cost of those medals?

    I posted the album below. Thank you in advance!

    Hello Zarski,
    Most of the decorations were made for veterans:
    1. Cross of Peasant Battalions (Bataliony Chlopskie) issued in 1988. Given to ex-members of this underground formation from WW2.
    2. Cross of September Campaigne of 1939 issued in 1984 in Exile. Given to former soldiers of war in Poland in 1939.
    3. Warsaw Uprising Cross issued in 1981 for former participants of the Uprising in 1944.
    4. Army Medal issued in 1945 by Polish Government in Exile for soldiers serving in Exile during the WW2.

    Medals looks OK for me but I am not an expert in this area.

    Greetings
