Stu, the only one I've seen recently has been this -

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/2-X-1st-Editions-The-Silmarillion-amp-The-Legend-of-Sigurd-amp-Gudrun-By-TOLKIEN-/222484621171?hash=item33cd1de773%3Ag%3A8xsAAOSwN6JY-3Bo&nma=true&si=v%252BKeNHK29cGQ9KAxHl6N2TylN6Q%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

I was tempted but the missing piece on the cover would have bugged me and I would have had to keep looking for another. I occasionally search on Abebooks but no joy there either.

Bookdepository says my copy is on the way!
It will be interesting to see what actually arrives.

I'm not sure if this counts as a lucky find but my wife was clearing out some old boxes and found these -

I remember buying them when a teenager at the same time I bought my first Silmarillion (1977, so I was 16). I even have the original envelopes that came with the cards. I thought they were long gone, lost when we moved house, so I was thrilled when she dug them from the bottom of a box and showed them to me. Now if she can only find my 1978 Silmarillion Calendar that I would have thought was lost at the same time!

P.S. First time posting photos, please let me know if I've done anything wrong.

Images added.

Khamul - If you know where I can get one far cheaper, please let me know. There is only one listed on Abebooks at the moment and as I said, I stopped bidding when the price passed that one. There was a cheap one listed a few months ago which sold within minutes of being listed. I tried to buy it but the seller had to email me to say that it had already sold and the impression I got was that I was not the only one who had unsuccessfully tried to buy it.

On another topic, am I the only one who is currently being redirected to blogs.fantasygifts.com when I try to get on the tolkienbooks.net site?
