[ModLib] THE RED FADED DUST JACKET SPINE PROBLEM

In my private collection I have VG/VG first edition copies of titles like.Farewell To Arms, V., and Roan Stallion...etc.
Collecting over the years, it has taken time to find copies with bright red spines.
I have sold about five copies of the first edition of Roan Stallion, all with faded spines....as well as the copy in my own collection. ...I am sure F/F firsts of Roan Stallion exist yet, I have never seen a copy.

Different printers? Back in the day, old-school printing, I am guessing
if they changed printers the jackets would have to be re-type set. This
may have even been the case if they were using the same printing
but changed something like the price on the jacket spine.
