1945 Commemorative Demonstration Badge on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features

(No, not an April Fools …) Maury spotted this unusual badge that appears to designed based on a visitor “badge” given to guests at Charles Sorenson’s Cesor Farms during the July of 1945 event (photo of the event) where a jeep demonstration took place.

Anyone ever see a plaque version like this? Though it is the only one offered for sale and it’s marked “used”, I suspect, given the array of other similar badges, that it is produced in Indonesia.

It ships for free from Indonesia. Starting bid is $15. Here’s another example of a badge from the same seller, a Willys Overland Jeepster Club badge.

    This looks like a cool item. As you’ve noted, It’s a copy of the only surviving sample of the Cesor ribbon that is owned by Daron Wanberg. So it’s an item that never existed, but is a cool tribute.
