Never seen any US paperback with a autograph that was genuine. Actually, they all have 'one thing' in common. They tend to copy the autograph that is on the back. Funny thing since that signature is a much earlier signature and when Tolkien 'would' have signed the book, it would be a much different autograph he would use.
By the time for example this paperback was published, his autograph was no longer looking like the one printed on the back of it. So any real signed paperback would have Tolkien's 'flowing autograph' and not this one.
