Default Panasonic TS-UP fake?

I bought some Panasonic TS-UP electrolytic caps recently on eBay from a supposed trustable seller.
However, I have some doubt.
Original from a Digikey image on the left, mine on the right
Printing is quite different, not just in quality.
What do you think?

I just looked at some TS-HA that I have fresh from Digikey and the outline of the rectangles is very sharp and straight, and the printing very clear just like the Digikey image. I would say the ones you have are highly suspect.

Send your images to Panasonic and ask what they think. Include the name of the ebay vendor in your message.

Thank everybody.
Enzo suggestion is good, although it seems quite difficult to get in touch with them, cause contact for industrial solutions (caps are in this branch) is reserved to registered OEM partners.
