If Beren can not (or will not) declare this a forgery, what is a mere mortal to think of it? The typewriter would not seem to matter. It would seem that JRRT (if this is genuine) was responding to correspondence typed up by a secretary at Allen&Unwin and made ready for his signature. But I have not ever seen that "T" (not that I have seen very many of his signatures) - Beren has many genuine ones in his collection, what thinkest thou?) and the color of the ink would make me think twice. What the TCG needs is a handwriting expert on staff. Jeremy, when you're not too busy, could you dig one up?
