Hmm...

There's a lot of copies out there --& with careful & persistent questioning it's pretty easy to nail down 1st impressions (in this format) of all the FS Tolkien editions. I've never really seen the point (personally that is --as I wasn't collecting when they first appeared in the late 90's) of buying direct (FS Tolkien that is), as they can all be picked up second-hand (as you suggest) for comfortably under £50. Not new admittedly; but pretty close, as people probably don't read FS copies too many times, I don't think.

FS have produced some fine books over the years. A good resource is FS's own bibliographies which, again, can be picked up second-hand. I have Folio 50 --a beautiful (an immense) book in its own right (--altho' only covers to 1996, if I recall.)

I've got a Silmarillion first impression signed by Mosley actually...
