I just saw this on E-Bay. Add should read" RE-CHROMED WHEEL" You guys were right , the wheel is re-chromed. They are "playing" with "as new". I asked if aftermarket re-chromed.
Answer, quote "New message from: direct (27,024)
We have had this wheel professionally chromed due to damage to the finish. Now this wheel appears perfect and As-NEW

I don't believe this is a true OEM chromed wheel in that it doesn't have the powder coating in the rear portion of the spoke openings nor on the back side of the wheel. Probably a satin wheel that was chromed.

That isn't factory 14P
It is re-chromed (no unfinished area inside the "forks")
Interesting he is showing pictures of the polished wheels on the Signature Series
