I also own several of these original art from the series... but to be honest should check which ones I have.

I bought fairly recently on ebay a piece of the original artwork from which two of the illustrations in the serialisation of the Hobbit in Princess magazine were printed.

One shows Gollum chasing Bilbo (you can see the picture on Deagol's site under his article) and the other shows Bilbo with 4 dwarves.

I was contacted out of the blue by an ebay member, mrpottersbooks, from USA asking if i would sell it on to him as he was trying to buy them for a donation to Marquette University.

I have declined (perhaps selfishly) at least for the moment as I am only just basking in the (limited) glory of having this unique item in my hands.

I have referred him to this forum however as a potential source of other owners as I remember some other examples being sold a few years back on ebay.

Red,

Have a look at this article from Beren's website.

http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/9 ... ke_Tolkien_Signatures.php

and you will notice a strong similarity between the eBay item and the contents of the article. I would not recommend anyone buys this letter.

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?
