    The serial number looks suspect to me. My serial number is almost not visible and the numbers are slimmer and not bold and my camera can’t pick it up.
    Here’s a picture of the back for reference for you.

    Unfortunately that’s the chance you take on eBay. Tons of fakes out there. Where was the seller located? USA or China? Was the seller an authorized Titleist dealer? Feedback score?

    He has a 95% and only 1 bad rating due to slow shipping and the seller is located in the USA

    Maybe someone more knowledgeable can chime in. I can’t tell other than the serial number looks off.

    I think they're fine. normally on these the fakes have the wrong font and the cavity looks like crap.

    Serial numbers look way off to me, number font on the soles seem a bit off as well. I am sure you can call Titleist and verify serial numbers to check. My gut says they are fake.

    I'm trying to dig up pics from when I sold my set, because I'm fairly sure the serial number was engraved and not printed. Other than that I think they look correct. You can send pics to Titleist IP team and they will tell you if you should be concerned or not.

    Serial number fonts etched/lasered vary by manufacturing timeframes and locations. Email the serial number to Titleist to see if they match up with the shaft and grip build and length (they appear to be stock specs). The "Forged" and "Tungsten" cavity fonts are correct. I believe they are authentic irons.

    Look legit to me. As mentioned, serial # font varies. All other fonts look good and sticker on 7 iron sole is reassuring.
