Thanks JD. I was thinking that it might be a resell or refurbished unit.
When I called Square D, they said that if it had the embossed logo, it was unlikely that it was counterfeit.
I was curious though, without this nondescript sticker that could have come out of any ink jet printer, how would you know that this was an HID breaker? The part number was the only clue in this circumstance.
It was just puzzling at the time, especially for something that was just delivered from the supplier. I happened to be on-site when they received the shipment of the new breaker.
Heck, I told the owner they needed to upgrade the existing breakers because I didn't believe that the correct units were originally installed, but, now I'm wondering. Maybe they are the right units, but, the sticker was removed or never there in the first place.
Curiouser and curiouser.
