THE ABOMNIABLE DR PHIBES Daybill Movie Poster Original or Reissue?

The two daybills for The Abominable Dr Phibes, pictured below, are both quite rare and it is not surprising that the daybill on the left would be considered as original by some collectors. However, when you see the two different daybills together it is obvious that the poster on the right is the first release. Censorship classifications changed in Australia in late 1971. The daybill on the left carries the post 1971 NRC rating while the daybill on the right has the "Not Suitable for Children" rating. The daybill on the left is likely to be a slightly later early 70s printing probably based on the success of the film.
