I found a first edition, later printing copy of the Two Towers (American edition) that lacks any type of date inside. It contains a dust jacket with the $5.00 price. Does anyone know how to determine which printing it is?

This comes from an article by Steve Frisby in The Tolkien Collector:

Hey, thanks a lot! I'll be purchasing a set of all the back issues of The Tolkien Collector whenever they become available. I also own a copy of The Return of the King with similar markings--no dates and only "Printed in Great Britain" on the verso of the title page. I'd like to figure out the impression of this one as well if anyone has that info available.
