No serial numbers on any of these mp 59 clubs. Grain flow forged on them.  Got them from a reputable dealer a while ago.

Need better pics but the bird logo in the last pic looks sloppy. Ferrules don't look good either.

Sorry, those are fake. The bird logo is wrong. This is the real MP 59. Notice the sharp lines on the bird logo and the bigger hole in the center of the bird body. And your titanium insert isn't even a separate piece and not more flush with the rest of the cavity. Also, the cavity around the toe is not correct on yours (thinner than on the the real one). Hopefully you can file a dispute and get a refund.

Looks like the MIZUNO and MP 59 is engraved on the fakes. Where as on the real ones it looks like they are acid etched.

I got them from global golf 2 months ago. Haven't touched them. Randomly came across an article about how to look for counterfeit clubs, and then saw there was no serial numbers on it. Well, I'll call them tomorrow to see. I'm hoping they will be cool, considering I've spent thousands with them.
