I hope these pictures will come in handy to anyone having doubts about the origin of their new-bought SM57.
I've taken some photos of my fake SM57 and a real one. Notice the housing of the fake SM57 compared to the real SM57.
Below is the real SM57 (made in Mexico)
I had this answer from an engineer from Shure when I showed them the pictures:

The wiring does not look like ours.
Always purchase Shure product from an authorized Shure dealer."
