The General Honour Decoration is probably fine. Enough real ones of them out there...

Regarding the Military Merit Cross... I believe them to be modern, so called "museum copies" by Göde. Some collectors and dealers anyway assume they may be old wearer's copy.

In case someone needs one... http://www.ebay.de/itm/170963665409

The best "tell" on the Military Merit Cross is the fact that all the WWI silver gilt ones were struck from a single pair of dies with a small flaw in the "T" on the reverse that got more pronounced the more they were used. I believe there is a very good article on Medalnets website that goes into this in detail.
