Default fake 2sc5200?

Hi guys,
i came across some 2sc5200's,i am not sure if they are genuine.
They look exactly as the ones on the attached photo.I got the photo from a site which claim they are genuine.The 2sc's i have are twice the price of fake ones with a glossy rectangle.
The reason i doubt these is because the metal tab and the pins are quite shiny unlike the genuine toshiba ta8221ah ic that i have.The 2sc's however are less shiny compaired to the fake ones with a glossy rectangle.
What do you think?Genuine or some other 'better' fake?I don't have a smoked one,i would've smashed it to see whats inside.
Regards.

The IC has a grey back and greyish pins doesn't it?

Your description doesn't suggest anything out of the normal.

hi Mt490,
thanks for the reply.Yes the ic has a grey back and greyish pins.Do the genuine 2sc's have the same physical characteristics as i described?
Regards
