We note that the auction of the 'letter to Mrs Gasch', supposed to end on 18 December, in fact ended early, with no bids, on the 13th.

The 'antique pencil sketch' doesn't appear to be all that 'antique', the style of drawing isn't Tolkien's, let alone typical of his early work, nor is it his signature. Isn't it amazing how much is being found when clearing houses! As for the latest non-signature, it's a less than half-hearted attempt.

That signature is horrible and they didn't even spell the word "guarentee" correctly. I feel like I've seen something like this before.

I'm not sure why Wayne and Christina have not mentioned it here, but they recently started a Blog, which I am sure will be of interest to everyone here.

Yet another signature

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/JRR-Tolkien-Cut ... ain_0?hash=item53deae63ac

but even with its 'guarantee', which is completely worthless in this context, does not look very good
