Default Is this a real KM?

Hey guys and girls, hope everyone is doing well.
Found a hookah that I'm interested in purchasing on Craigslist that is described as a KM. I have mixed feeling about the authenticity of this hookah, though I could be totally wrong. Would anyone be so kind as to give some insight as to whether this is in fact an authentic KM? It may be worth noting that I have a KM with the exact same vase, which does bear the KM logo. Of course, it'd be far cheaper for a scammer to just slap a KM base on a fake KM stem, so I don't know what to think. I know that it's a bit more difficult to determine being that you cant see the stamping under the ashtray, but any info would be very helpful. Thanks so much in advance!

Be well guys,

-Dizy

Actually it does look like a KM hose but minus the poof and red & gold threading that would cover the metal piece between the handles and hose. The KM tag would normally be attached at the end of the threading.

Also, there are other Egyptian manufacturers that make the same stem so to determine if its a KM or not, check the markings on the tray rest and the hose port tube.
