Here is mine:

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/3002/Intel-MD3002-B.html

It's dated by 4 weeks earlier, and it doesn't have part number and date code stamped. I haven't seen many MD3002 chips to tell whether the MD3002 in the parent post if genuine or not.

I've seen yours in Mr Phillips Collection Guide. A very nice one.

I'm just suspecting the print. It is too crude from Intel, isn't it?

but the bottom looks genuine.. and top date matches

maybe just because it has had a hard life it looks a bit suss
It may have had a coating over it at some time.. removing this normally disturbs the print

Fair enough.

Thanks Stu.

All responses seems this chip is genuine. I'll take it.

Thanks all!

Try cleaning those rusty legs carefully with some fine steel wool. Wink

I can ask the seller to clean up and put solders on it (Refurbish).Seller calls it wash legs. I have got few DIPs went through such process.
But now I prefer it looks rusty(vintage). Cool

Hmmm I would clean up if I were you as if it is rust then over time it will get worse and eventually the legs would drop off

I'll do some clean when I got the chip.
Thanks for the advise.

Looks genuine to me too. Same print quality/method like from P4004s.
