Help, please

I recently bought a first edition of "The Man With The Golden Gun" that shows a golden gun on the book. The seller told me that it's not the rare "embossed gun" edition. Dustjacket and book are all identical to the normal first edition except the gun on the cover.
Does someone know what kind of edition this is?
