I just recently purchased a set of Miura Irons. CB201 in 3-5 Iron and Retro Blades in 6-PW. All shafts and grips match and the clubs look and feel great!

My only concern is that some of the clubs are stamped with the GENUINE on the neck, and some of them are not. I know these are older irons, so did Miura have a time when they did not stamp GENUINE on the necks?

Clubs look legit.

I forgot to bid on these which were a steal.
That's a great iron / combo set

Enjoy them

Only selective Miura's have the "GENUINE" in print.

Wow. Those 201's are super clean! I have always had a soft spot for the 201's and 301's. Both are hard to find now-a-days in decent shape, let alone decent shape AND conforming groove.

Nice pickup! Enjoy!

I have two sets of 1957 Small Blades and a set of Retro TBs that look identical to yours.  All three have the GENUINE stamp on the hosel.  I wouldn't worry about your Retros, the pic of one looks legit to me.

Congratulations on scoring some Miuras.  They have the best feel ever in my experience.  I was a Mizzy die hard fan boi until the day I hit the TBs, mb001s, and baby blades.  I also hit the 57 CBs but didn't like their feel as much as the blades.  That day I became an immediate Miura 'snob'.  I love the feel of them over any Mizuno, which to me are still 'buttery' sweet, but OTOH Miuras have a solid feel that is lacking in Mizunos.  I compare the feel of a Miura to that of snapping a young tree branch and a Mizuno to that of hitting a marshmallow.  Whatever it is, I'm hooked on it shamelessly.  I still love my mp67s, but they are now the lowest on the pecking order behind my Miura sets.  Here are my 3is in said pecking order:

Congrats! Great set. If you're worried at all about them being real, I'd be happy to take them off of your hands. :)
