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.

I agree with you Trotter in regard to the private forum. I'm pretty sure I mentioned this to Jeremy before (or intended to). It's also a good way of banding about site management issues e.g. if Jeremy wants help with maintaining the site, or ideas for improvement (not strictly private matters, but you don't need to clog the public site with them.)

In regard to AL, I agree he must have been weary with signing. But, AL's signature always looks very light. And, he more often that not used a fine black pen. This looks like a blue biro.

Jeremy?

I looked at the article and this Fellowship is the wrong impression, if it was one of the rare copies it would be the 9th instead of the 10th impression. This is a copy of A&U edition married with a Reader's Union dustwrapper and a fake signature. I reported this seller again to eBay.
