Hello mate, my english is not the best, it is poor, but I will try to give you my sincere opinion. For me, the pieces of that ordensspange are original, the crosses are correct, 50 years service cross seems original, the bar also. For me, the problem is that this type of bar facilitates that the decorations can be put on and removed very easily, and the blue ribbon of that medal is suitable for many different decorations and it is impossible to know 100% if the assembly included that cross for 50 years of loyal service ... with that ribbon, fits perfectly a Prussian decoration, or many more.

Also, as you comment, the cross for loyal service is much more deteriorated than the other decorations. I think that this bar could include a Prussian decoration for years of service, this would be most likely, but I can not prove it.
