I was actually going to mention that --but wasn't sure exactly what I'd seen. The one in Waterstones, I handled, had no indication of reprint; hence my statement above.

So, do we know any of the differentiating points between impressions, or even how many times it's likely to have been reprinted?

Exactly right. The green is significantly brighter and the paper less textured than the genuine 1st.
