I think this is a tricky area to pin down because the difference (can) be so subtle (and almost all description has used Hammond as a starting point). I have ~20 GA&U variants (although obviously not that many 1st/1st variants); and describing the shades is very subjective. I made a table for them all at one point; will post if I have anything worthwhile to add...

Can anyone help Tim? Post here or contact me if you have this puzzle. Thanks!





I moved recently and lost the 2 horned helmet pieces that are atop the pillars at the front of the building. If anyone has them, can they ... send me a xerox copy, so I can replace them. Thanks. Hasbro bought Wrebbit in '05 and is no help as the puzzle is discontinued.

Here are the answers to which cover is which?

Picture 1 - Clowes First Export (Second Variant, Paper Cover no headband)

Picture 2 - Billings First Edition (Domestic Edition)

Picture 3 - Clowes First Export (with headband, and cloth)

The Billings Edition is more Blue than Purple, but I think both of my Clowes copies have identically coloured blue/purple wrappers, which contradicts Remy's post as his copies are different.

So to sum up the two Export Edition variants can be seen in either coloured wrapper.

Is number 2 the Clowes First Export (with headband, and cloth)?
It looks more blue than blue-purple.
