The dust jacket is not price clipped stating 6s, and is in good condition...

Hmmm... I'm not sure if "good" really covers it.

Thanks for the links, Red. I couldn't resist buying the 1966 Hobbit, seemed to be in a very good condition and quite a good price!

Unless they started using barcodes in 1966, that isn't a 1966 Hobbit. I'm pretty sure that US Editions always state the copyright as being 1966, even on much later printings...

Edit: The book states 25th printing, which is from 1968 (if the article I just looked at is correct), so the dust jacket with the barcodes does not match the book.
