The tenon is not short. It's medium, which is standard on Japanese guitars. It extends to the end of the fretboard but not into the cavity. It has the same merits as a 'true' long tenon but it's not how Gibson did it in the 50's so people assume it must be inferior. It is still a much, much better joint than you get on most modern Gibsons.

The new picture is very bad, but I agree. The centre join on the flamed top clearly doesn't have a matching line within the cavity. If it's not a solid top it can't be an LS200. The brown fretboard just adds to the evidence.

It's an LS70F for sure. Brady, what country are you in and how much did you pay for this guitar? If you paid big money and expected an LS200 then you've been conned.

I do like the rosewood board. It's lovely.

Difficult to say. What country are you in? It depends on the market where you are. Was it sold to you as an LS200? What made you think it was a 200?
