Every time (literally) there is a discussion about a signed item, it seems to be the "classic" J.R.R. Tolkien signature. I have a calendar with the classic signature that he also signed Ronald. It would seem to be incredibly personal and rare. I would appreciate comments on this and would like to know if anyone else "out there" has any items with inscriptions other than JRRT. Thanks all.

Tolkien's personal stationary was Basildon Bond for many years (during late 50's and 60's and possibly later).

I'm interested in anything and everything about Tolkien - I hadn't heard this before, so forgive my asking again - can you tell us where this info comes from?

Tolkien's personal stationary was Basildon Bond for many years (during late 50's and 60's and possibly later). The lack of the watermark does not mean the letters are fake. But the mention in the description that the letters were typed on Tolkien's personal stationary would cause me to look for the BB watermark. The lack of a date on the letters is odd to me also, just an observation.

Can I ask why you say that the letters ought to have a Basildon Bond watermark?

The letters look appropriately aged and weathered. However, Tolkien's personal stationary had his name and address pre-printed at the top. Also, there should be a Basildon Bond watermark visible when the letter is held up to the light. The lack of a date is also odd.
