The corner where there is a dot on the package is pin 1.

Top right corner.

BTW, it's a GigaDevice flash memory. You need to program the chip before soldering the replacement on

Thanks I really could tell if that was a dot or not, yeah the chip I bought is already programmed. Michael

Top right corner. The dot is a small indent.

It's also marked on the PCB silkscreen, the notch indicates the end with pin 1. With the chip right side up, pin 1 is always the bottom-left corner, most of the time the text is printed right side up on the IC however I have seen pictures of a few examples where this wasn't the case. Never personally encountered one though.
