The German box The Rest Of The Best - The Rolling Stones Story 2 is existing with two different catalogue numbers:
The Rest Of The Best - The Rolling Stones Story 2 6.30125FA
The Rest Of The Best - The Rolling Stones Story 2 6.30125FX
The FA box is the one that had CSB included and the FX is the corrected issue without the CSB single. This is good to know when and if you buy a box. If the box on sale is a FA and the CBS single is missing, then the box is not complete.
Here's the rare Cocksucker Blues 45 which came with the box you showed. I picked the box and 45 up some years ago, and one does not see them too often.
Lucky Guy Jan is right, one have to know that there's two editions. But as you write Stonesstein , I'd only seen the single once... so I'd choose the other one, better than nothing and worthy with or without the single anyway.

Yes Kitan and for more information here's the notes from John :
Rare Rolling Stones German 7" single C***S***er Blues, only available for one day in the 4 LP Rest of the Best Box Set. Quickly withdrawn due to content and Copy write infringement (single was NEVER authorized).It was cut as the last single due to Decca Records to fulfill contract requirements.Jagger on acoustic and is quite rude.The Stones submitted it to Decca knowing full well it couldn't be released. ONLY OFFICIAL RELEASE OF THIS SONG EVER! GUARANTEED ORIGINAL!NOT THE BOOTLEG VERSION, WHICH HAS COME ON THE MARKET. THIS IS THE ORIGINAL WITH MACHINE STAMPED MATRIX NUMBERS. BOOTLEGS HAVE HANDWRITTEN MATRICES. The single is in NM condition.
