Counterfeit Pentax 43mm Limited?

I saw a picture of Pentax FA 43mm Limited for sale online, and I noticed that there is no manufacture location on the front of the lens. Is this normal or is this possibly a counterfeit? All the other FA 43 limited seem to have either MIJ or MIV right across from the 1:1.9. Aside from that the lens looks just like any other you'd see.

Only the MIJ have it written on the front, AIV is underneath or and the rear mount. Its never been written on the front.
