    Hi James,

    The 2nd Corps Exemplary Driver badge appears genuine although I do have some reservations regarding the end of the threaded post. Lorioli posts typically had a perfectly hemispherical end. But that is not always the case, as evidenced with some of their hat eagle badges. Also, this badge should be serial numbered. The yellow backing the denotes a third class level.

    The Medal for War 1939–45 is the so-called Geneva version. The flash photo does highlight some unevenness to the surface which is troubling as these die-struck Swiss produced medals were typically of a very high-quality. This one appears to have had a rougher life and coupled with possible distorting effects of the flash this medal may in fact be okay. Further in-hand inspection would be helpful. Cheers, Tony
