Generally, most of the fraudulent letters use blue ink for the signature, though not all letters signed in blue are "fakes." That one there is certainly not signed by Tolkien. I believe this letter was discussed on this forum somewhere when it first came up for sale on eBay(?).

When something like the following shows up for sale:
http://cgi.ebay.ca/J-R-R-Tolkien-Sign ... tible&hash=item4aa86c0e09
how does one determine whether or not it is potentially authentic or fraudulent?

Obviously, no one at HarperCollins has access to a calender as the website that closed yesterday is still online.

This will be my last post on this subject for a while as the individual concerned will be facing a court trial, I am assisting the police and I do not want anything on this site to prejudice that trial.

So in closing

"Last night, eBay were unavailable for comment."

Just like for the last couple of years.
