I assume that a metal plate was created of Tolkien's signature and used for all the books that carry this particular signature. If you look at where it is used, the angles are different, so more than one plate could have been made. Additionally English and Medieval Studies: Presented to J.R.R. Tolkien on the Occasion of his Seventieth Birthday, has a different facsimile signature.
