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).

And this one as well.

eBay Item #171420678822

Sent this message to the seller
"Hi,

I have looked at your pictures, and am surprised to see a 1975 Hobbit with a dust jacket price of 20 shillings. The UK moved to a decimal currency 5 years before the date of this book (1970), my copy is priced at £3.00 in decimal currency. I don't think this is the correct dust jacket for the book, and you may want to mention this.
