Does this wheel look correct to anyone? Kinda hard to tell w/ the poor images, but it sure looks dark (almost walnut). Can't make out the grain in any of the pictures. http://www.ebay.com/itm/231140534698?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

It does look very dark, but I suspect it's just the lighting when the pictures were taken. May also explain why the grain is hard to make out, as you noted.

Sure looks like a early 69 walnut wheel to me.

It appears to be 'walnut' coloring to me as well.  Weren't some of the reproductions colored like that?

I am leaning towards the walnut too.  I have a GM walnut wheel on mine and it has that same shade.  Original rosewood do photo darker than in person, but not that dark.  Repro rosewoods wheels are more orange in pics than the real ones.

Wheel in the eBay ad sure seems like a walnut wheel with a 69 hub.

Other than the shallower dish, was there any other difference between the early 1969 model year N34 walnut (pre-rosewood) wheel, and the 1967-8 version?

I had a 67/68 walnut wheel. I remember it being deeper and larger diameter w/ the same 3 spoke overlapping design Purchased it for $15 out of a"junk yard"in the early 80,s, (it was like new condition). Sold it for $500 + a few years ago.
