Response to Replacement Medals
Perhaps they are unclaimed originals.
As far as the difference from the few "originals" that I own, I did notice that the "loop" at the top of the Stars (Italy Star, F&G Star, etc.) through which the ring for the ribbon passes appears to be larger and rounder than on the original medals I own. The loop at the top of the "original" stars is more oval in shape.
