BEANO 1973 NO DATE ANY HELP?

I have a Beano annual 1973 that has no date to covers nor a price inside, I have been told this is quite rare as it is possibly an publishers advance copy, it is in mint condition, but was wondering if anyone can confirm this is a publishers copy or just one that got through the printing press without the cover dates and internal price? many thanks :-)

It could also have been printed in anticipation for sale overseas.
I have recently noticed that annuals I have bought here, in New Zealand, are often without the year on the cover. And yet I find that the same annuals when viewed on the 'Annuals/Books' section of this site do indeed have year printed on them.
Maybe the books didn't make it out here in time for the pre-Christmas market and this meant that the books had a longer shelf life past the traditional Christmas sales period?
My two cents.
