Has someone a guaranteed genuine Sandisk INDUSTRIAL 16GB SD card?

...and could make a macro picture of it (both faces)?

I have seen several offers of these roughed cards for less than 10$ and am not sure they are genuine industrial ones.

Thank you.

Looks like they have shifted the "Industrial" branding to Western Digital instead of Sandisk so there might be a genuine case of selling of old stock .... and/or there was excessive fakes.

I don't know why they don't have serial number tracking, other bits of kit I have you can check the serial number online and it tells you if the serial number doesn't exist, it belongs to a different product or 200 people have checked the same serial number. This data can quite quickly narrow down the source of fakes.

If the offers are from anyone but the vendor themselves or a flash storage specialist, there's never any guarantee that they are real.

Bulk flash supplier/duplicator Everything But Stromboli list them for $8.65 US today, but I'm not sure what quantity you'd need to buy to get that pricing. Note that commodity flash prices change daily.

Incredibly that's the one-off price
