Looks like someone made a steal, auction ended early with only one bid.

It has been 3 or 4 years since I sold this set, and I'm afraid I do not remember if it was blue or green. I have a couple of other photos, where the slipcase does appear even more blue than the photo you were looking at. I've not noticed any problems with the colors in the past, being totally different at least, but I'm afraid I cannot offer a definite answer for you. I will attach the extra photo, so you can compare.

The $5.00 price on the front flap of the Houghton Mifflin 1st Edition, 1st impression is larger & bolder than later impressions. The Dollar Sign ($) has 2 uprights & extends well above the top of the '5' The loop of the '5' extends well below the level of the zero's. Later jackets have the same style as early Two Towers, with the smaller characters, all the same size and the Dollar Sign has only one upright. Hope this helps, from The Tolkien Collector #22. Photo shows the 1st state dj, hope you can see the $5.00

Hi Stu,

I just wanted to make a couple of thing clears, this set was sold in July 2012 (and I thought it had been removed from Beren's site at that time) I think it was probably listed in 2011, so there is the reason for not saying it was the later printing box set, as they hadn't been released (I think) when I listed this set. Also I checked back on my listing, and it was described as Good only in the book and dustjacket condition box on the listing software. When it was uploaded to Berens site, it drops all the extra boxes, and only lists the description and title boxes, which I agree it should not have been listed as Near Fine, completely wrong. I guess I took it wrong in that it was two year old listing, and I thought it had been removed from Berens site. I assume since I have not listed any others of these sets since then, he left it up to at least show what the sets looked like (even with the damage). So my apologies

David

Stu,

Please note that the set of HoME that you found fault with my description is no longer listed on my web site. I have notified Beren that they are no longer available. Also, did I miss somewhere where it said 'rare'. I may have said "hard to find", but certainly not rare. At the time they were listed, they were much harder to find then now after many more were issued by Harper Collins.
