Look please at the pictures below. The old charger is genuine when I bought a ME865 (sealed box). Today I bought MF841 (2nd) along with a new one. Is this a fake?

    The 3rd image (with CE, UL, trash can symobls, etc) is a bit blurry. It will list the manufacturer. Can you upload a better image or tell us what the manufacturer is on both of them? Oct 23, 2018 at 13:19
  • @UnassumingGuy Is it more clear now?

    Can you put them on a scale and weigh them? Oct 23, 2018 at 14:09
  • They both are made by Delta Electronics (or so they say). From the counterfeit adapters I've seen they are manufactured by another company. Oct 23, 2018 at 19:53

My guess is genuine. I recently purchased an 85W off Amazon that's similar to yours. It came in all the Apple packaging trappings and I think it's genuine because my guess is Apple changed the location of the serial number to that harder-to-print location specifically to make the game harder for fakers. (Why would a faker bother to move the serial number into such an awkward location? It's quite possible that printing in that confined space requires special equipment, which would force fakers to either forego the serial number, use a sticker, or use two pieces of plastic instead of one solid piece.)
