Default Authenticity of jumbo crystal

Someone is selling a supposedly original 365V06GNS crystal for a jumbo. I am comparing the bevel with the original on my watch and it appears almost identical. However what is making me wary is the "almost" part, and the fact that the paper pouches have the crystal code written on them rather than stamped. Also, there are 3 available. Just wanted to check the person is not overcharging for sternkreuz glass glued to the original metal ring.

Opinions?

Have pics of the packets or a link?

There’s a couple of sellers selling fake crystals in genuine packets on eBay. Does the packet look old?

Yes, it does look old but at the same time the crystal code is just written on it rather than stamped. My gut is telling me this is a fake..
