Verify whether memory is genuine Crucial

I recently purchased on eBay 2X4GB 1066MHz DDR3 RAM sticks for my Acer 5740G laptop. They had Crucial stickers:

Part #: CT51264BF160BJ.C8FED

Batch #: FH1143K.89

Material #: 232408

Date code: 201626

However, SPD shows different data:

Manufacturer: Samsung

Part #: M471B5273CH0-CH9

Serial #: 4445326D (same for both sticks)

Is this genuine Crucial RAM or Samsung or what?

@arniebar Thanks for contacting us today. I pulled up the material number and batch number and it appears that they  match what we would expect to see. It could be that the SPD is reading a component used on the memory that was used from a different manufacturer (sometimes third party parts are used in manufacturing the memory). Based on the data provided everything checks out on our end. I believe you received legitimate Crucial RAM.
