Here's one, that probably the only difference from the one you posted laurel is the dustjacket, for an absolutely absurd price.

Since my return to the buying and selling scene I have noticed that there are quite a few 1/1 books out there with later impression jackets. I'm curious what this does to the collectibility of the book? It seems like the book would be worth the same as if it had no jacket at all. Anyone have an opinion? Thanks

Thanks khamul, that helps! Does anyone want to take on what the price sticker situation with Shaping and after is? i assume that some of it is just inflation so they took the old price off and put a higher price on via sticker, but...was there something else going on? thanks

Peeta, the stickers on BoLT I & BoLT II (& Shaping --but more complicated) are the priced copies; there are no jackets with printed prices --GA&U utilised stickers.

Also on the topic of HoME, is a price label added after being price clipped mean much in terms of what the book was intended for and collectible value? a few years ago i bought a 1/1 Book of Lost Tales that has an A&U sticker on it and i remember someone telling me that that was good, a bonus in a way. But that book was not price clipped and did not have a price, just the sticker. Thanks, and it looks like there's someone who wants that PoME!
