Bit slow in posting here, but previous to a few days ago I hadn't really had any remarkable finds. But, I just bought (another) GA&U (staff copy) CT signed Silmarillion last week for £5! Seller, upon questioning, stated...

" The signature " Christopher Tolkein " appears on the first free end paper. The signature is clearly and neatly written. I can not guarentee, but I think it is likely, that the signature is actually an authentic signature of Christopher Tolkein, who is the editor of this first edition of the book which was published four years after the death of the author. Christopher Tolkein is, as far as I can deduce from the foreword, the son of the author.

Yes, I think he is J. R. R. Tolkien's son; & needless to say, Christopher didn't spell his surname incorrectly...
