Item number 320036002126

Just stumbled upon this Ebay item. This is one I've never seen. It looks just like an SR arm pair that was taken to the buffer. I'm aware of the "Mexico" cranks that are reprofiled and in some cases have had the spider arms slotted, but this just looks like a buffed-out Campy crank. I don't wish to suggest that the seller is trying to pull anything, but wouldn't it be pretty easy to take a slightly scuffy set of arms and make it into a "NOS factory-polished crank." Again, not saying this is a deliberate scam, but might someone have been misinformed, or otherwise be confused?
