I'm sorrry I got that alittle muddled, I think. What I meant was : the original Phantom reprint featured artwork identical to the Ace book
(copied, not reproduced) & then Phantom re-issued the book in it's Phantom Classics imprint, featuring the same artwork, sans star.
(Phantom, interestingly, had the legend "Not a reprint - this is an original novel" or words to that effect, I think borrowed from Gold Medal, adorning all their covers [except the Classics line, I assume, which originally republished just the bigger hits they'd already had]. Interesting because every single book was a reissue of a US book.)
