So, since I've started my quest of collecting every piece of the game, I more or less managed to find everything here or there (Amazon, eBay, Vinted, here on this forum...) but I'm failing to find a decent copy of the C1 version of Hills and Sheeps.
It's very frustrating because it's the only "major" piece of Carcassonne that I'm missing, but it's nowhere to be found (unless you want to spend 150 USD for it).
I'm totally OK with "minor" pieces to be hard to find or expensive but why is this particular extension so unfindable at a decent price? Even The Catapult is way easier to find than this.

Maybe fewer prints because it was released the same year as C2 basegame (c1 exp 9 was officially destined to be replaced by a C2 version) and same year as a big box including it too?

In short, yes.
In long:
It seems that there has been a lower amount of Hills&Sheep printed across most publishers. This could be due to the switch to the C2 artwork not long after H&S came out.
Most major expansions have seen multiple print runs from most publishers, which makes them more widely available (and yes, even the catapult had multiple print runs, at least in italy by Giochi Uniti).
But H&S had a shorter time before it became "old news", so the availability is reduced

If you do not care about the language, here is probably an edition of Devir from Spain.

Shipping to Italy is possible and payment e.g. via paypal.

All in all definitely cheaper than ebay&amazon and co.


PS: But better ask there if you are interested, whether it really is the C1 edition.
I'm looking for:
● Carcassonne shopdisplays (esp.dicegame.+ Minis ger.)
● Carcassonne Στα Κάστρα του Μυστρά (2002) Greek first edition
● Carcassonne - chinese Sur knight kings editions
● ETCOC / WTCOC 2020 commemorative tiles
& more -> https://ibb.co/cCcm4SB

I see that I made and big mistake two years age, when I sold my C1 H&S for price to buy C2 version...
At least I helped C1 player because it was without box and I have finally my collection in C2 :)

Keep searching and always ask is it really C1? Because some sellers not updated image of expansion and they sell C2 version and not expecting C1.
