I've seen some bad cases of strap wear, but this might be the worst. Or you know, "signs of use".

I've been looking for a stray non-drive arm and saw this yesterday. Cringe-inducing, innit? I wish he'd included a nice, juicy close-up, like the one he provided of the back side at the pedal hole!

I may have one that will work for a rider. Send me an email.

How many miles...? That's nuts.

Bah! That's nothing, I used to wear my Sugino cranks to 3/4s thickness or less ring my fix gear winter bike in Boston road grit wearing booties in 10F. Needing both warm knees and low Q-factor and not getting the former, I just figured replacement cranks cost less than replacement knees.

My Sugino 75s picked up a little of the wear on that Campy in the first few miles before I made a stop to locate my shoe/cleat and keep my shoe from making contact.

The wear on that crank will do nothing to shorten its life. They go from cracks through the pedal threads. (I rode around two breaking Campy cranks in my short racing career.) As long as the price reflects the appearance, what's the issue?
