I own what I believe is a first of "The Naked and the Dead" everything is identical with exception of $4.00 price on DJ is there a thought on this

Is the price clipped off, or is it missing on the intact page? Missing on the intact page probably means a book club edition, clipped off means clipped off. What I have is a book that has a different DJ inner front and back flap blurb, and a different Rinehart logo, with no R, just some small calligraphy. I'll bet Rinehart has no indicators of subsequent printings, and that this is one of them
