Is it just me or do the various variants of the HC Silmarillion with the gold-edged jacket not seem to turn up on eBay very often?

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.

Yes, I saw that one. I don't have the A&U/HC hybrid edition (so I was very tempted to buy that copy), but like you, the missing piece of jacket would have irked me.

Just surprises me that none of the three variants seem to show up with any degree of regularity.

I was thinking the following -

*1972/1992 Hybrid (http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=62160)
*1992 Edition (http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=62250)
*1995 Edition (http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=62300)

edit: Trotter put in links for tolkienbooks.net

but

from tolkienbooks.net

"Two similar impressions issued?

The 3rd and 4th Impressions may be reprints of the 1992 Edition - the edition year may have been changed in error."
