Never saw something like this. They probably used standard 25pin versions and cut them to fit the more unusual 23pin layout.

However it does not matter function wise. When it is stable and the metal has a proper connection, then it should be ok.

Yeah, pretty much all video cables you buy from Amiga shops these days have 25-pin connector cut to 23-pin, because real 23-pin connectors just aren't available anywhere anymore.

So, these can't be said to be "original", but they do their job nevertheless.

Yes most sellers have been chopping off the end of DB25 connectors in recent years because of stock shortage. But on a recent post someone has a stock of proper connectors link.
