Can I ask why you say that the letters ought to have a Basildon Bond watermark?

The letters look appropriately aged and weathered. However, Tolkien's personal stationary had his name and address pre-printed at the top. Also, there should be a Basildon Bond watermark visible when the letter is held up to the light. The lack of a date is also odd.

They certainly seem to have gone up in price a lot, one was bought on Ebay for $238 in June.

I was wondering what you guys thought about these letters. Do you think they are legit? They just seem a little off to me--no dates and the signatures look almost too clean compared to the paper. In addition, the content is so nonspecific ("south coast" & "down south"). I'm interested in your thoughts. Just trying to spark up some discussion.
