Default 50 Yr old (or probably a lot more) KM Hookah

The Story of this hookah goes as follows:

This hookah was purchased on Egypt by my dad's best friend grandfather (who is a lebanesse guy) aproximately 50 years ago.

This hookah was given as a present to my dad aproximately 20 years ago and he has it on a house we own at a little town called San Miguel de Allende located in the state of Guanajuato, here in Mexico.

I never ever saw it as it was sitting on a corner of the house, but this weekend I went on a little vacation to San Miguel and I saw it and I examined it and because of the lotto flowers I suspect that this is an original KM (the flowers are exactly the same as my KM exotica and my KM trimetal).

Now... the pics...






















So... what do you think guys?... Is this an original 50 year old (or more) KM or just a generic egyptian?

Thank you!

I'm not sure its a KM because other manufacturers use the lotus flowers on the tray rest also (IOW, it's not unique to KM). The hose tube looks like Sarhan to me but with that thing being as old as it is, nothing I know really applies.

I think it might really be a KM. Thats one nice piece of history there either way. Clean it up and do a video. I think many members here would appreciate that.

I'd have to disagree with anybody that says to clean it up and use it. I'd keep it in it's current form and just let it be a conversation piece.

I was thinking the same thing as I was reading all these people saying smoke it.
It should be an artifact not a functional piece.

That could not be possible because my dad has this for at least 20 years and that pipe was used by my dad's best friend grandfather for nearly 40 years according to tony (My dad's best friend).
