You mean if they are the same object or refer to the same row in the database.
If object, then simply comparing the address given by Scalar::Util::refaddr
would be enough.

If you want to check if they are the same row in the db, then you could compare
their table() and id() to see if they are the same.

Is that what you were asking for?
