The HarperCollins logo on the spine of the slipcase has the word "Encore" below it, instead of "Harper Collins". The Tolkien Library Store also have a set in a beaten-up slipcase like this (for $750 [yikes] -- and may be have been the same copy?) so it does not appear to be unique.

Edit: It also looks like the thumbholes on the slipcase are smaller on the "Encore" version. I have a set that is currently in the post, which may or may not be the "Encore" one (as I haven't seen the spine), but the thumbholes are definitely smaller than shown in the picture on tolkienbooks.net

I noticed in the thread below (which shows an alternate variant of the set), that there is a claim that there are only 100 copies of the illustrated '92 boxed set. Does that claim hold any water -- it seems implausibly low, considering they do come up for sale now and then?
