Hi folks, I recently bought a second hand LP-E19 genuine Canon battery from a very reputable on-line store for used camera gear in the UK. The battery on the right is the one coming with the camera and the used one is on the left. Mint condition in original packing. I paid £80.

How can one tell if the one on the left is genuine? The labels are different. Unless this battery was aimed for sale in a different market area that requires different information on the label ( China for example). There is no 'CE' marking too.

I don't have enough knowledge about fake batteries to know the answer, but a battery is the one thing I would never buy used.  You just don't know how long it's been used for and how many recharge cycles it's gone through, or how it's been recharged.
