Look fine to me. Really need to see the bung to verify, but the printing and vent stamping look like mine from Mouser.

And the vent stamps seem a bit odd, like the more generic ones.

they are legit.

I installed a HE into something today that looked the same... odd, but it came from mouser... So it's legit.
