New member, need help with these awards.

Post by Anton S. » 31 Aug 2019 11:05

Hello, I am new to this site and collecting. I have purchased these medals while on a trip for a low price (equal to around 30 USD). I am not sure if they are real. Could you guys help me out?

Ribbon isn't for any German national award, but it is Red/White/Black.... are the German nation colors so may have been for some unofficial medal or sports award. No idea really.
