Default Buying used Cragar SS rims and what to look for

I have been trying to buy original period correct Cragar SS rims for 5 years.
Over this time I have learned that one must be Very Careful before buying any used Cragar ss rim. They have had many owners and its hard two know the rims history.

This post on ebay has prompted me make this post and ask those that know these wheels better than I do to add their wisdom to this post

The rim looks welded together?
If you look at the back of the rim it looks to have been re-welded ?

The one rim does look rewelded-the cobbly one. I just looked at all my Cragars I have about 10 or so NOS and all the welds are smooth.

Also, the one rim appears to have been split and rewelded down the middle. I have never seen that on any Cragar wheel and I have owned probably 40 or so NOS over the years
