>Sorry, Stu. My mistake regarding #30. However, if I recall, you were fortunate enough to land #3 of the Super Deluxe Children of Hurin. Were you as lucky this time around?

Yes, I was quite quick off the mark on the CoH SD, but not so this time. Even if I had put in an order when the website first came on line (I didn't), I'm not convinced it would have yielded a really low number. I suspect anyone who got a low number would have ordered the day before via the phone. And that's assuming that they are even being that accurate about number allocation. This time around I don't think they have even stated that the books will be sold in sequence. From some of the comments here relating to numbers and order times, it looks like perhaps they are not entirely sequential. And for all we know, they might have held onto the first 10 (or more).

I haven't opened mine from bubblewrap yet ( ), but it looks like it's #71 (from the label on the box) -and I ordered at about 3:20 in the afternoon. Go figure...

I noticed another difference, the Tray Case for the Children of Hurin is Morocco (i.e. Goatskin leather), but for the Legend of Sigurd and Gudren it appears to be Cow leather, the grain is much bigger and if you look at my first photo at full resolution you will see the difference. Morocco is more expensive than Leather from Cows, so it looks like someone in HarperCollins was trying to save money on this book.

I am thinking about complaining to HarperCollins about the pull-out ribbon as the design on the Super Deluxe COH works perfectly, so if anyone can explain how the new desisgn works, then please post here (I believe that the ribbon needs to be longer to work from its attached position, it is below the book currently).

> If Stu got #30 at 10:00AM, and Trotter got #73 at noon, then they were selling at a pretty decent pace.

Not guilty, it was Deagol that got number 30
