Unpublished 1965 SUPERMAN Cover! Curt Swan Art! Lex Luthor! DC Comics!

This is it! Direct from a special feature in the 1965 SUPERMAN 80-PAGE GIANT, here is the unpublished cover for the then-recently produced SUPERMAN #175! Drawn by Curt Swan, and swapped out for another version also by Curt (see below), both covers feature the artist's trademark gracefulness, action, composition, and iconic figures! Why the switch? Maybe the head honchos at DC thought Supes took up too much space on the cover of the first version, leaving the lethal Luthor in the lurch? Not enough implied peril? What's your opinion?
