    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.

    Hello Fellow Collectors, a friend of mine (from the UK) asked me how they could order replacement medals for their ancestor that served in World War I. They have their ancestor's discharge (demobilisation) papers and with that, the papers show the veteran's serial number (service number) and the places of service. The ancestor served as part of the home guard and did not see action overseas but nonetheless, with those demobilisation papers in hand, is there a specific government (UK) division they can write to obtain replacement medals? Thank you. (I am posting this message here on this string and another string as well).

    Unless he had anything other than the normal medals, i.e. defence medal, war medal etc. probably be easier to buy them from eBay, as they weren’t named anyway?

    I love the British Campaign stars and medals Great design and even the colours of the ribbons mean somthing. A word of warning there are now repros of all of these medals on ebay now most are chinese rubbish incredibly almost the same price of originals. The most valuable is the Aircrew of europe, Lots of fakes of these. Post here before purchase! Here is my set for reference. Regards Paul.
