Imperial German medal replicas

As part of my display of WWI aircraft I put together a replica group of all the medals won by William Barker (actually had to include a couple of real medals though obviously not Barkers).
I would very much like to do the same for Richthofen. I've obtained a few replica's so far, but am not having much luck finding sources of replica's of german medals from the Imperial period.
If anyone can give me any information of sources for these I would greatly appreciate it. I already have replica's of the Blue Max and the Red Eagle, but looking for the lesser known medals like those awarded by some of the german states like the Bavarian Military Merit Order 4th Class with Swords. I know replica's of these do exist but I can't find a source.

If you have a look on ebay, there is a constant supply of various states' replicas by the manufacturer Goede up for sale.

Is it an original or a replica?
