It has even more of a resemblance to this fake item from cavorite51

http://cgi.ebay.com/Personal-Letter-J ... tible&hash=item2eb24eb41c

as it is the same letter.

I have sent an email in spanish translated by Google informing them of the problem with the letter.

Thanks for finding this criatura. If you could contact them as well that would be useful.

Regards

Andrew

EDIT

I have just noticed that it is not the same letter as the cavorite51 (original fake below), this looks like a second go at faking the letter, as it does not have so many mistakes (though Oxford is spelled incorrectly) and it has been distressed more than the first letter. The date has also been removed from the second fake.

I agree that it appears to be fake. It bears a striking resemblance to the many fakes we have seen from ebay seller 'cavorite51.'

example:

Hello everyone,

first of all I would like to apologize about my poor english, it is not my native language, not even my second, but I do my best.

I would like to know if this letter belongs to Tolkien:

Tolkien┬┤s letter

I think is fake, but I┬┤m not an expert.

Thank you very much for your help.

Kind regards.
