Know these basics first thing:
There are NO rules, right or wrong ways to do jigsaw puzzles. What some puzzlers consider cheating others consider 'assembling smarter'.
It is possible that all puzzles 'could' be missing a piece and you will never know IF all the pieces are there unless you assemble it yourself. I say that because I have experienced brand new sealed puzzles with missing pieces more than 3 times. It happens at the factory level. Contact the puzzle company to see if they offer replacement puzzles or pieces as many companies do provide that service.
It's ok to use the picture on the box or the numbers/letters on the back of the puzzle pieces. The purpose of the numbers on the back of the puzzle pieces is so more puzzlers will enjoy doing the puzzle without getting frustrated.
IF you are not enjoying the time you spend doing your current jigsaw puzzle leave it uncompleted and move on to a different one.
There are just too many good puzzle images out there to enjoy and there are many images out there that are not suitable for every one.
