Thank you- not sure if this is complete (think one ribbon is missing)

its a Croatian piece. Mine is without swords so the ribbon could be different but you can start your search now for Croatian!

Just a collection? or did they belong to a soldier?

I believe the black and silver medal above is the Croatian Military Order of the Iron Trefoil 3rd class. It could also be awarded with oak leaves for gallantry in action. I think the white and gold award in the frame is the Croatian Order of the Crown of King Zvonimir 1st class neck cross. It had a red ribbon with white stripes (colors reversed for the civil award) and could be awarded with swords for military merit and/or oak leaves for gallantry in action. Both of the above could be awarded as a neck cross, breast star, breast cross, or medal. The medal in the lower right of the frame is the Croatian Order of the Crown of King Zvonimir Silver medal of merit. It was also awarded in bronze and with a gold oak leaves device for gallantry in combat. Examples of all three medals are in the "3rd Reich Orders & Medals" gallery under "Foreign Awards Approved for Wear".

Thank you for the info

This is from a collection, unfortunate but no history on the soldier.
