Unkbob - After looking at your photos there was one thing that peaked my curiosity and that was the Made In and Assembled. Strangely enough your "old" battery shows "Made In China" but the new states "Cell Made In Japan pack Assembled in China". I grabbed my 7D bought through an authorized Canon Reseller and mine says the latter "Cell Made In Japan pack Assembled in China". Perhaps this may assist you further.
