I found this really interesting to read - it does make sense that someone with such a deep understanding and training in languages could be useful for code and cipher work. It would also make sense that Tolkien would want to help out in the war effort in some way at home.

I am a little far away from my library at the moment - is this the first evidence of this? Did it get mentioned at all in Wayne and Christina's works?

Hi mykl,

it all comes down to condition, but having this puzzle complete and in a nice box seems to be selling on eBay for around $15-25.

I have an "unopened" 500 piece puzzle and can't seem to find any info on a value, just very little on description. Do I have something that's worth a lot or just a couple of bucks? Thanks, Mykl
