Btw, Beleg - is that a Plaza tribute rank avatar?

Sir Alpingloin

I appreciate what you say.. any good fortune will certainly be embraced should the signature ever develop appreciation value. This of course will be a plus, as appreciation value is secondary to why it was acquired. If the signature indeed remains to be deemed fake by consensus of this forum, then it will never find it's way back onto the marketplace. It was removed from the marketplace as a fake, and will remain removed from the marketplace so long as popular belief of this forum holds it in question.

Case in point..

Jlong; "It is unfortunate that these fake signatures keep cropping up."

Findegil; "Christina and I have serious doubts about this signature."

Beren; ".. the signature, which is not Tolkien(ish) at all."

Onónion; "I will not place a bid as I am very doubtful about this."

I think Beren should buy this. The documentation will be of special interest to him, I think. And then, perhaps, one day soon, we'll sit together and smoke our own pipes while admiring it.

For you tobacco enthusiasts (you know who you are, I am amazed at how much traffic the Tobacco Guide Page gets), I just ran across this eBay auction:



A sample pipe created by an employee at Alfred Dunhill as a proposed limited edition pipe. It was never produced, so this is the only sample. Obviously made by a fan, looks very nice and comes with some interesting documentation. I'm not a tobaccoist/collector, but someone should find this interesting!

Does anyone (maybe Beren) have information regarding whether this will be available to U.S customers right out of the gate, or will I have to wait several months as was the case with the signed deluxe CoH?

On another note, I understand what people are saying with regard to HC not providing the best customer experience. I have had numerous emails ignored and have not always been pleased with them myself. It does indeed make sense to wait for deep discounts (30-40% off) and then purchase one copy for yourself. However, I must admit that I am a sucker, and I will likely purchase my copy for full price when it is released. After all, I will make up for spending the extra cash with the profit from selling one of my spare copies of the signed deluxe Children of Hurin!
