Hi Jamie ... Unless you have pictures of the clubs you plan to buy it is hard to explain what might be wrong - Best advice, which I always tell people when buying used clubs (especially on ebay) is to "buy the seller" i.e. check out whoever is selling the clubs (is he a PGA Pro or a well respected store / Pro Shop?) - Also, make sure the seller will accept returns, so that if you buy something & you're not 100% sure about, you can send them back for a refund - It might cost you the price of postage, but better that than ending up with a set of dodgy clubs - Hope that helps & feel free to ask any questions - Plenty of people here who can advise you on possible fake Mizuno irons

I can't tell the number of the iron you highlighted but the 9&PW are 1025E

If you look on the confirming clubs on the R&A website you get a photo and info on markings as per

I purchased a set 3-W , no serial numbers on hosel, nothing on ferrules, looked very nice, that being said, after speaking with Mizuno in USA and Australia, they couldn’t confirm from that information.
The tell tell sign to confirm counterfeit was parallel shafts, Mizuno could confirm their irons are all tapered .355 shafts.
Seller was very accommodating, sent postage paid label and fully returned purchase price.
Hopefully next set will pan out ; gotta be a top notch detective these days.
