    They still seem to be available, so I signed up and ordered one. We will see!

    I received news I would get a £50 refund as well as notification that they are adding a new overseas/high value packaging to avoid future damages.

    "Retail versions" DO have the stamp, but only the 1st editions. Becca seems to have a real anomaly here. Maybe they ran out of Animal boards before they ran out of 1st print page blocks?

    If so that makes ANOTHER 1st print variant.....
    The VJ Books version also has a tipped in page with a printed box where Owen signed.

    Here is a pic of the front board:

    I guess with today being Friday the 13th and all that it would be fitting that my order (for a fellow member) for the S/L would finally be approved. I was also ensured by Waterstones that "extra packaging" will be used. We shall see once it arrives.

    Would that be considered higher than average? Sounds about right to me for a newly released collectible.
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    I believe this is due to the Cemetery Dance auction. The prices have jumped since theirs ended.

    Just a guess, but a small group of 10-15 buyers picked up ~60-75 total copies.

    It arrived in a subpar outer shell and the book was free to move around inside of the shell but it did seem to be wrapped up pretty good. Upon removing the additional packaging, the book appears to be in F/F shape as it was wrapped in several layers of packing material. The only improvement I'd like to see is that the book be shipped inside of an actual box for added protection. Photos in spoiler tag below:

    I'll sell you mine...it will probably end up being the most sought after dinged variant due to the damage it sustained. I couldn't even get it out of the slipcase at first. Deal of the day, original price plus shipping and it's yours.
