I reported it as well.

Frankly, I'm a bit fed up with all these fake items. If you think it is a fake, please do the same.

Just noticed this sellar has now changed description of item to highlight sold as seen type approach. Not enough in my mind and it shouldnt even be offered for sale.
I have reported to ebay for what its worth

A private forum is a great idea but at the same time people such as myself who are no experts but merely keen Tolkien fans use this site and wisdom cascaded to make 'right' purchases.

How would it be decided who would be eligible to join such a forum?

Ps Agree pict 1 looks interesting, the remainder look ok

We may also send your report to the rights owner for review. -eBay

This also seems slightly pointless. Are they going to send all this crap to Christopher, and ask him if he thinks it's genuine?

I have to admit, I don't look at most of this stuff now, so don't get that annoyed by it. But maybe I should start reporting (something I've never done.) It's all (in the long term) damaging for the collecting community.

Maybe, if Trotter's private forum idea is set up, we can have an official discuss (& assuming it's an agreed fake) & report, where everyone makes an effort to report the item/seller; keeping tabs on regular fakers, and petitioning eBay to have their accounts closed (for all it's worth.)

Also Trotter, I think you're right about him not being well (enough) known. (And, his signature genuinely doesn't add significant value to an item.) But others (fakers) may think otherwise. People will have heard of his name associated with the Jackson films, and may believe it worth faking to add value/appeal.
