Some time ago, we decided that the 2 versions are actually 1 item.
But we forgot to remove the reference from one version to the other. (We'll fix that.)

One version has an extra sidebar with Daisy, the nieces, and Gyro. The other version doesn't.

Version without sidebar: Norwegian "Verdens Gang" of 1993-07-03
Version with sidebar: Swedish "Kalle Anka" 1994-01

Since Rosa made both versions to be published, neither (or both) can be regarded "original".
For practical reasons, we decided in Inducks to call the version with sidebar "original", and the other one "changed".

> - Is there an *earlier* unofficial publication of either versions?

I don't think so.

> - Which version has been published in the USA?

In WDC 600, the version without sidebar was used (as you can see on COA).

> - Does the USA version contain changes in comparison to the European 
>   versions? If so, which changes?

Not that we know.
