About this cover for "Raider of the Copper Hill"

This cover shows the same kind of scene as the German-published version (OD 2), but they still look entirely different. On the first version, for example, Scrooge holds a cowboy hat in his hand, but here Don has replaced it with a regular cap. Furthermore has the cactus with the sign on on the first version been replaced by some kind of tree with the same sign (Pay Dirt!), and all the "desert animals" on the first cover has been replaced by regular flowers (!). Thus, Don has transformed the scene from dry desert to steppe landscape.
