Later impression jackets [LotRs]

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

If the two were brought together (at a later date), by anyone besides the publisher, then I think it totally trashes the collectability; personally. Essentially, there is the whiff of deliberate deception at some point in the books history.

Agree. Don't like the thought that a dj has been changed and someone has replaced with wrong impression. Would rather wait and save money until right copy came along. This can be frustrating I know but patience is the key here especially if funds are limited.

This being said as khamul eluded too sometimes the 'odd' dj was put on by the publisher so research needed. For me the fun is still in the hunt and to find a better copy every time I buy.

Some good books out there at moment if you look hard enough.

Yes, worth the same as an un-jacketed copy unless done by the publisher. That said, I have taken a perfect ex-libris jacket and mated it with a matching book (that had no jacket) to produce a combination that is perfectly correct and matching. I think the only problem is when the bits don't match.
