Beren - as I understand it, that's what a 'per procurationem' letter is: Tolkien dictated it, the secretary typed it up and signed it on behalf of Tolkien, with her initials underneath. There is no question of her trying to imitate Tolkien's signature.
To remind our fellow readers, here's a link to a page in that previous thread:

sammi, you have a terrific letter there! Enjoy it.
p.s. - you say you have an impressive collection. I'm intrigued - can you give us an idea of what else you have? For myself, I have some six or seven dozen copies of TH; and LotR, and multiple copies of most of the rest of Tolkien's fiction. My favourite areas of interest are Tolkien's early poetry; and his academic pieces, as well as artwok; both by Tolkien and by artists inspired by him.
