My mother ended up with this, and I'm not sure where she got it. I think at a garage sale, but it might have come from:

as they somehow found each other years ago after he was profiled in the Enquirer.

Anyway, she's passed the game on to me and I was finally able to go through the database and verify that it doesn't match any of the current versions listed. First off, it's in a red box instead of brown like the other 1965 versions, second, there's no label on the back, and third it's got a butterfly-style interior. I don't know yet how the rules/cards/gameplay differ from other versions, but wanted to see if anyone had any information on this particular setup. I'll have to re-type the ruleset for readability, as the copied rules are kinda dim and missing some text on one side (which I should be able to suss out in context.)

Wow, that is super cool. I have many, many versions, but nothing like this.

Very very cool
