It's this sort of thing which can draw in the unwary, I think -

"There are supposedly a number of copies where a facsimiled signature is present. Personally I do not know. The only thing that points to it not be standard printed is that you can feel the indentation on the verso of the page, I have included a photo of the verso and the signature imprint shows through distinctly."

This can, I suppose, make some think it _might_ be a real signature, and worth a punt (what with signed Tolkien books being so valuable and all).

It'll be interesting to see if the new owner re-lists it at a fantastically higher price.
