How to distinguish the original from a fake?

Hey. Who can tell how to distinguish the original from a fake? I bought 2 strips in different stores, and each one has a different sticker. This is normal? Or is one of them fake? Thank!
On 1 and 2 photos - one strips.
At 3 photos - another strips.

Re: How to distinguish the original from a fake?

Our labels have changed over time, the memory you bought is different from the original because it has a different build ( .MS16FP vs .C16FER). This is why if having exactly matched memory is important to you, then memory should be purchased in matched kits. If you purchase the same base part number from different stores, or over the same store over a long period of time, there may be variances in the part. This usually shouldn't cause issues with them running together, but there is no guarantee of that anytime you mix parts.

Thank you very much for the clarification. I realized that she and the original. Only they have different stickers on time and release.
