Here is a link to more information on the Auction loonka is asking about just to make it easy to catch up.
I don't think this letter has been disputed here at TCG, it has been seen on the market place a few times before that I can recall.
RR Auctions is a reasonably reputable auction house, they go to good lengths to verify items before they are sold (they have contacted at least one regular on these boards to give an expert opinion on a previous Tolkien signed item) and they have pretty good returns/guarantee policies (I quote below from their website):
Each signed item is unconditionally guaranteed genuine without time limit. If a lot is declared to be not authentic, we may ask the purchaser to supply the written opinion of one competent authority acceptable to us. We will refund the purchase price after documentation has been submitted. The buyer’s only remedy under this guarantee is the cancellation of the sale and the refund of the purchase price. This guarantee does not apply to non-autographed items.
Every item is cataloged with the intent of accuracy. Improperly described items must be returned within three days of receipt. Please call us before returning any items. A merchandise credit will be issued in the case of a subjective, unresolvable dispute over condition.
Returns of non-autographed items must be made within thirty days of the closing date of this auction (no exceptions). Returns after that date will not be accepted for any reason.
I have enjoyed dealing with them in the past, myself.
