It's a combination of medals. If it was an attributed group that particular soldier would have been in more dangerous situations than I care to imagine.

I'm still new to collecting medals and i tend to buy medals that catches my eye.

In the case of the Silver Star (and it's miniature I also have) in this picture it was part of a group by a seller as a WW2 group that the seller thought was the  France and Germany Star. Luckily I spotted the difference and he broke up the set and sold the Silver Star set to me.

Just shows what kind of thing can pop up if you do some research and have sharp eyes.

Thanks for the info! Good call on your behalf!

The seller must have thought that because France and Germany Star's ribbon looks very similar.

Exactly what I thought except he did not notice that the design of the ''France and Germany Star'' in his collection differed substantially from all the others. All the other medals themselves in the WW2 series he had for sale had exactly the same obverse design so the difference immediately caught my eye.

And to be honest: I don't feel bad for asking him to break up the set to sell the Silver Star separately since it clearly wasn't a France and Germany Star so in fact it wasn't a bona fide full WW2 set as claimed.

Most of the medals in that photograph are copies of the actual medals. They were advertised on various sites as copies and I bought them with the full knowledge that it was not the real thing.
