I have two copies of X1.  One has a blue cover and fits the description in the "modules" section as a second printing.  The module is #9043 and the booklet is #9034, as is indicated sometimes happens.  The other one I have has a purple cover, the banner is more red than orange.  It seems to be a third printing, as evidenced by the ISBN and product number on back cover bottom left.  It is dated 1981.  I don't know about the booklet number, as it is sw.  So, is purple an unusual color for this module?  Thanks!

I've seen a ton of different colors for X1. I think they mixed the ink daily.

Does the 2nd print have this product list:

This item is only one of the many popular playing aids for DUNGEONS & DRAGON® Fantasy Adventure Game produced

Dungeon Module B2 (The Keep on the Borderlands)

       easy)

       combinations)

(Course won't look right in this forum window, but the text/products wise)

I'm curious if the 3rd matches the 2nd's product list? (I know the 1st print is different)

Yes, the back covers are identical with the exception of the addition of the product number and the difference in color.
