I have known Angie for many years and knew the story of it being shown to Rayner to get his opinion long before the item was sold by Daeron's, so that much is true. IIRC Rayner said that it was more than likely JRRT, but it was difficult to be entirely certain because JRRT's handwriting could vary enormously.

The book was "rediscovered" and bought for very little in a second hand bookshop I think, so not a deliberate fake made for profit anyway.
