Can't say I've seen a Tolkien signature with what looks like an 'X' type mark where the 'k' should be. I think it's a fake.

Hi laurel.

I hadn't heard that The Devil's Coach-horses had anything to do with balrogs; though in his book 'The Road to Middle earth', Prof.Tom Shippey speculates something of the kind, to do with another of Tolkien's writings: Sigelwara land, in Medum Aevum (1932, 1934).

The Devil's Coach-horses was first published in 'The Review of English Studies Vol.I, no.3, (Sidgewick and Jackson, July 1925). There's also an off-print; is this the one you have?

There was also one dated 1925, printed by Edwards Bros, Jersey, but acording to Hammond's bibliography, this is printed in Monotype Bembo , which was not cut till 1929.

To my knowledge, Wayne and Christina remain the best authorities on Tolkien and his life. As they observe, "We too have significant doubts about the 'Higgins' letters. We've seen no evidence of Higgins, as Tolkien's doctor, friend, or otherwise, outside of the letters offered on eBay."

Collector, if you have further evidence that could prove otherwise, I'd be more than interested in what you might have to say.
