Two iPhones in iTunes Manage Devices

I just checked out the Manage Devices page in my iTunes and see that I have two iPhones listed. Not sure if I should remove one or not. They seem identical apart from dates (one is 9/12 and the other 10/11) and the newer one has ��� instead of an apostrophe in the device name.

Is it safe to remove one? How can I tell which is actually my current iPhone 5? I assume going by dates, but I also had to exchange the 9/12 iPhone due to manufacturing defect.

You can go by date. To be sure you get the right one, right click on the phone in iTunes and select backup from the drop down. That will do a manual backup with today's date so you can tell which is the old phone. No need to keep the old backup if everything was successfully restored to the new phone.
