Instructions for initial setup of Ledger nano S are available on the official website (https://www.ledger.com/start/)

To verify the authenticity of the hardware wallet Ledger Nano S, we can recommend 2 ways:
1) Visual inspection of the packaging
Just like Apple products (don’t take it for granted)advertising), Ledger products have their own peculiarities when packaging devices: there are small holes on the packaged film - evidence that the hardware wallet was sealed at the factory.
2) Internal inspection of device components
Previously, we described the main components of the hardwarewallet, so don’t be lazy and carefully inspect the insides. The presence of original parts, as well as the absence of unnecessary elements, indicates that the device is original.

For instructions on verifying product authenticity using Python, see the following article.
