To be fair, Trotter, would any seller who describes a book in one sentence, be likely to spot this kind of mis-match? Clearly the jacket is still a third edition jacket; just not a 1975 jacket. I'm guessing this is a c1966-1969 jacket; by 1970 the jackets had both imperial & metric, didn't they?... he asks the man with every impression of The Hobbit...

The dust jacket is from the 1966 Hobbit, the seller stated that they used the wrong photo.

The 1970 Hobbit has the price in £.s.d. and decimal currency.

25s. = £1.25p.

Wish I did have all the impressions of The Hobbit, have the most expensive one missing :(

The boxes are the same size, but the text colour and position on the box is slightly different between the two sets (50th on the left in the pictures).

I have the recent 4-hardback LoTR + Reader's Companion 60th Anniversary boxed set. I've been looking for the 50th Anniversary set for some time. I know it's been stated in a forum here before that the 50th set isn't all that rare, though I only see a couple a year on Ebay and elsewhere. If anyone is selling, let me know.

Anyway, my question is: are the boxes from the 50th and 60th Anniversary sets identical? I know the books are different, but I'm wondering about the box.
