I have the recent 4-hardback LoTR + Reader's Companion 60th Anniversary boxed set. I've been looking for the 50th Anniversary set for some time. I know it's been stated in a forum here before that the 50th set isn't all that rare, though I only see a couple a year on Ebay and elsewhere. If anyone is selling, let me know.

Anyway, my question is: are the boxes from the 50th and 60th Anniversary sets identical? I know the books are different, but I'm wondering about the box.

The boxes are the same size, but the text colour and position on the box is slightly different between the two sets (50th on the left in the pictures).

Thanks for the pictures Trotter. I notice also that the sides at the opening differ as well: angled for 50th, curved for 60th. I guess I can't cheat by buying the older books separately and putting them in a newer box!
