And what I want to know from him is whether this pervasive confidence is really the genuine article, or whether it's just something that has to be worn for the occasion. (E. O'Connor, ‘The Last Hurrah’, part III, ch. XII) — И мне хочется узнать у Бэрбанка, является ли этот общий оптимизм искренним, неподдельным или же он взят напрокат только для данного случая.

Why, even if she had to return to France, did she not write again? That is, presuming her to be the genuine article. If she were an impostor, of course, it's easier to explain (A. Christie, ‘4.50 from Paddington’, ch.12) — Почему вдова вашего брата не написала еще раз, даже если ей и необходимо было вернуться во Францию? Я исхожу из того, что она действительно жена вашего брата. Если она самозванка, то все объясняется значительно проще.

I'm offering you the real genuine article - out of the bottom drawer. (A. Christie, ‘The Secret of Chimneys’, ch. XXVI) — Я предлагаю вам настоящего принца - заготовлен на всякий случай.

2) честный, порядочный человек

Tommy... had never suspected Haydock - he had accepted Haydock as the genuine article. (A. Christie, ‘N or M?’, ch. IX) — Томми... никогда не подозревал Хейдока в темных делах. Он считал его человеком порядочным.
