I think ebay is probably your best option for selling the items you describe. Most of the discussion here revolves around Tolkien's written works, and not so much movie related items.

Condition is important for copies without dust-jackets, even if the cloth covering and the boards are nearly always in poor condition, but this book does have serious condition problems on the inside of the book, which the seller has shown in the photos of the item.



I agree - I had personally been quite surprised to see it go as high as it already has. With eBay, you always have to take things with a small pinch of salt, though. Amazing how many things "sell" and then are back on the market from the same seller a few weeks later.

Hi!
Not sure where best to start but I have a collection of mainly Royal selangor Lord of the ring items including 2 of the big models (battle of the bridge of khazhad dum and the shieldmaiden and the ringwraith, as well as various goblets and plates, signed posters and a sideshow WETA model.

What would other collectors / sellers suggest? Is eBay the best place for selling these products? I understand that I may not get back what I paid out but these beautiful models and posters are in their original boxes etc
.

Any suggestions or Comments would be of great help

Dan

So I take it this is THE edition to own (sans jacket). Any guesses on final price given the condition?


Less than 5,000, but hard to say with these, to be honest, as you only need a couple of people who really want one (or one who does and a shill) and the price can end up quite different than on a different day with a different set of bidders. Worth noting is that all the activity is only between a small number of bidders.

Makes no sense to me that people bid days before the auction ends. Also, you could buy a better copy on Abe for GBP 5000, so if it goes over that, the buyer has made a mistake.
