Is this a real KM84?


guy mcdude:
Hello All,
I came across this mic ( pictured on the far left) as I was interested in adding to my others.

A few things struck me as odd.

the three "drill marks" on the connector ring

and after now having it in my possession for evaluation, I noticed its very different cosmetically than my other three.
[silk screened model]
[different serial number font]
[ different pad switch]
[different color]

so....Im wondering could this be a counterfeit?

the sound is close...but I've heard bigger differences in "known" microphones.

any insight would be appreciated.

all the best,

Just bumping this post, was hoping some folks who have seen (or worked on ) more than the three Iím familiar with could offer some opinions.
