    The 'medal' with the gold ribbon and green edging is only part of the medal. Below the breast-plate and crossed-cannon should be a circular medal... The Medaille Militaire...

    2 are belgian (with the crowns), one is a WWI war cross and the other is, I presume, a WWII war cross; the letters on each of them are the initals of the king; others are french, a WWI war cross, a legion d'honneur and a damaged medaille militaire

    What would make you feel that they may be fake? They are right as rain.

    The medals look original. The one with 1940 at the rear side is a Greek WW2 3rd Class cross of merit, there is a half of a "1870 Valeur and Discipline" french medal (yellow ribbon). The other 2 is a Belgian Cross of War (WW1) and the respective french one with palm and 3 stars (citations). The last is the order of the legion (french again WW1 era). All look fine to me

    It is a bit late now, the auction ended sometime in April/May.
