In Settings/General there’s an Apple Pencil listing. Here, the serial number for your pencil and other information is present. I would think it’s pretty early for fakes to be out there already, but I could be wrong. Are there 1st gen Apple Pencil fakes out there?
 

Never mind

Thanks BaddAdvice for the location of the serial number. Didn’t think it had one

I'd doubt a fake, if they exist, would pair and work with your iPad, so give it a try to see if it does. And check the s/n like Baddvice indicates.

If you don't have it in front of you and are wondering how to tell from photos...walk away. Any deal too good to be true probably is. You can't be saving THAT much on a pencil 2....anyone who has an extra could just return it to the Apple Store for a full refund.
