Chris King alternative logo hubset

I recently bought a sscx bike with a CK wheelset on it.

The front hub seems to be machines differently. It has an elevated center like a philwood hub. Yet, the preload adjustment is the same as a standard CK front hub.

The rear has a series of logos engraved around it instead of the standard CK logo.

Anyone have any information on these hubs? I contacted someone that has a headset w/ the same logo sequence & was told that an ex-employee made a few of these as a joke & somehow they got into circulation. Chris king apparently doesn’t display these in their museum, nor do they want too. Possibly less than 5 in existence.

Anybody else have any CK components with these strange logos? Any other info?

The front is the single speed high flange front hub and I remember seeing the etchings on king stuff for a year or so, they might have had them on headsets too?

This is bothering me! I know the tank, smiley face and hammer were sold as t-shirt logo, and I want to say that was mid 2000's around the time pretty and strong campaign launched.
