I don't recall seeing a dustjacketed copy of this, either. I am sure someone lurking here (Findegil? Bernd?) has one tucked away, if one does exist.

I will hazard a guess that the line "To commemorate the 75th anniversary of publication" will just be dropped from the packaging - as you say, Stu, to the average buyer it will not have any material impact.

I hope to be able to share more details on this edition soon, but have been asked to wait.

What's worse is when (not in this case that I am aware of) the seller then relists the item at a higher price. I have had that happen to me as a buyer more than once - when it sells immediately after listing and they realize they underpriced the item.
