This is what I managed to fit in the small number of letters eBay allows when you report an item.

"Typewriter was used to fake Tolkien letters such as this faked Signed Letter.Dr Higgins is also fake".

Well at least we know who faked these letters and the typewriter that was used to do it. I wonder if the Tolkien Estate could take any action against this seller.

This is the best to date!

Words dont fail me but not appropriate to post i'm sure.

I wonder if this is the same typewriter that recent letters offered for sale were typed on. I am guessing it is and if so maybe we have seen the last of them or is this too optomistic.

The funny thing is that not only did Tolkien leave a load of letters and signed books to all sorts of people in the house in the loft but he also took and left his typewriter as well. How careless?

Soulds perfectly plausible to me - I will checking my savings to buy this piece of history.

Not at the moment, Harm, but we're looking into it.
