the signature looks genuine to me
I have a 1st Us Ed of the Silmarillion (with good provenance), signed on the title page by Christopher Tolkien in 1987, and it looks exactly like the one on the signed card posted by Deagol.
As for the C. Tolkien signature in the Limited 1998 edition, if you had the task of signing 500 books; would'nt your signature be done very rapidly and scrawl like and be very distorted from your normal signature?
