Has anyone ever seen a very poorly made ttt stem?

This one arrived looking like a modified, hollow-reach Pivo. It says "MADE ITALY" rather than "MADE IN ITALY" and the recessed logo panels look badly stamped rather than pantographed. This hollow portion appears flatter or crushed.

Do I have a forgery ? >>

No, not a is just their el cheapo model....
