Ya think this is real or a knock-off?

The serial tag is so fuzzy I can't read it! Something about the serial number looks odd to me.

The seller says the tag reads ' Husqvarna 372XP 965 70 23-00 s/n 08 2201061 Husqvarna AB'. If it really says that, using the 'Q' in the reference to AB Sweden, then the saw may be a fake. To give the guy the benefit of the doubt he could have typed it wrong. A correct tag should read 'Husqvarna 372XP 965 70 23-00 s/n 08 2201061 Huskvarna AB SWEDEN'. A bunch of fakes came into the country a while back with this error.

Looks real to me. The knock offs always seem to have something obvious missing or wrong on them.

Guy closed the auction and relisted the saw.
