Indeed, Findegil wins the Best Wedding Present Ever prize hands down. What a great story...

Now now Holford, you have plenty of nice Tolkien items already I'm sure. Plus, I'm positive this isn't all you've had a close look at in recent months of a Tolkien nature.

If signed Tolkien books can go for £50K+ (although exceptional), then I think a piece like this for £30K-£50K is pretty good. Interesting to see what price it goes for.

Any reason their selling Deagol?
(Garm) Where is it going to end up do you think? (Bodleian?)

Well it was in 80-something and I think his job was to clean out the house to be demolished or something. He wasn't just going snooping in random houses. That really is beside the point anyway

Ahh! I envy you, that you've seen it. As for the chances of having it for one's very own; I agree - the lottery is the only answer.

But I bet I can make a guess as to which institution or body will end up with it...
