Have a look at this. It even has a subsection about your specific transistors.

There are no indications that the IRFP140 is not fake.
Here compared to the IRFP240, a genuine IR part.
As far as I found, International Rectifier exclusively uses the TO-247AC case style.
The IRFP140 is a TO-247 PSI 340L-02.

hello and thank you,

yes that was one of the first pages i came across while reading up on this. He has a lot of great information on that site.

I am still curious as to whether or not Toshiba ever actually made transistors that look exactly like these ones with the shiney surface area, or whether anyone has identified another manufacturer who's packages are being branded as Toshiba.

Was there ever a batch of genuine Toshibas with this shiney area and very clear lettering on the package?

Hi,
my Tosh 1943/5200 have a plain matt surface and the printing is very difficult to read.
Are they laser etched?

The backs of mine look nothing like those pics.
Mine have mickey mouse type ears at the top due to the top line having a depressed edge and the sides have an indent.
The bottom edge is completely straight.
