For under £100 this is not bad as well.

For a second impression it is pretty good.

It is very hard to say, I have the receipt from Waterstone's for the trade and deluxe edition that I bought with the date on it, but as far as I can see that is the only provenance you can get for these items, particularly as you can buy a US copy and easily transfer the plate to a UK deluxe.

I'd avoid these and for people who want a signed copy of COH, get the SuperDeluxe instead as you know the signatures are fine.

I also, as stated before, would not buy from any seller who offers a no return policy on signatures.

So, looking at the way fakes seem to have heavier lines on the helm, does this auction look fake or real? After I queried it the seller put a little 'this could be fake' bit onto his description. Certainly from the pics earlier in this thread it appears fake;

Waterstones had very large quantities of both the Trade and Deluxe Edition on the first day, it looked to me like at least 1000 Trade copies and about 300 Deluxe, so I'm also struggling with how they ran out.

The signed bookplates were on big rolls. It looked to me like Waterstone's staff applied these to the books as people went into the store, which is why they ended up in the UK Deluxe copies and not just the Trade editions (they had stated that only the first 50 people in the queue would get a trade copy with a bookplates).

I'm also intrigued that it would be very easy to move a trade bookplate to a Deluxe copy

Please note I have no coa for this signature so will sell as signed after Tolkien,as per ebay rules.


What does this mean?

Could the people in this article have got off jail time by saying it was 'signed after'?
