As far as I know, no other company has managed to perfectly duplicate Spyderco's FRN molds, and that handle is exactly like the ones on my Natives. It's hard to tell in your photo, but the clip seems to be fine as well -- I have a Native with a slightly-darker-than-the-blade clip that has a strange non-satin finish too.
It does look as though the two screws towards the butt end of the knife may have been replaced at one point though. Your photos are kind of blurry so it's hard for me to tell, but, are the corners of the FRN texture kind of chewed up around the screwholes, or is that just the way the light is hitting it? It is super weird that those screws are bigger than the pivot screw, none of mine are like that (although I don't own the s110v version).
At the very least, I'd say your knife has had the screws replaced for some weird reason. At worst, maybe one of the previous owners disassembled the knife and swapped a cheap fake blade into the Spyderco FRN.
