How to tell if it's an OEM hood

Found a hood and the stamp reads "9A 5 B".
Does this correspond with an OEM hood or a repro?

Thank you in advance.

Do you mean the repro one will have the sticker? I didn't think a 44 year old hood would still have a sticker on it, right?

Any suggestions for shipping from another state? Little items I've purchased off eBay, etc. are easy, but a hood seems like it would be a challenge. Would a body shop in the area be a good resource?

FYI, I was going to ship a deck lid from Boise, Idaho to Northwestrn, Washington. UPS quoted me a $300 fee plus packaging.

^ get some insurance and have the seller take some good pics before packaging (esp if shipping UPS) these guys are brutal with packages IME, I would never use UPS or USPS to ship something like this.

Consider truck frieght.

Since it's only about 4-5 hours away, sounds like a road trip is a better idea.

How much is the seller asking if you don't mind?

$425 for an alleged 'perfect' hood. In the ballpark? Getting jammed?

no way i would have it shipped too many bad stories
425 is a fair deal i think as long is it is a gm part
the aftermarket parts are generaly lighter than an oem good luck
