Red,

Have a look at this article from Beren's website.

http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/9 ... ke_Tolkien_Signatures.php

and you will notice a strong similarity between the eBay item and the contents of the article. I would not recommend anyone buys this letter.

Generally, most of the fraudulent letters use blue ink for the signature, though not all letters signed in blue are "fakes." That one there is certainly not signed by Tolkien. I believe this letter was discussed on this forum somewhere when it first came up for sale on eBay(?).

When something like the following shows up for sale:
http://cgi.ebay.ca/J-R-R-Tolkien-Sign ... tible&hash=item4aa86c0e09
how does one determine whether or not it is potentially authentic or fraudulent?

Obviously, no one at HarperCollins has access to a calender as the website that closed yesterday is still online.
