Re: 3 Tolkien Letters to Higgins

Subject: Re: 3 Tolkien Letters to Higgins

Tolkien's personal stationary was Basildon Bond for many years (during late 50's and 60's and possibly later). The lack of the watermark does not mean the letters are fake. But the mention in the description that the letters were typed on Tolkien's personal stationary would cause me to look for the BB watermark. The lack of a date on the letters is odd to me also, just an observation.
