More letters! I anticipate we will see more during 2010.

When i pointed it out to this seller he replied- 'Thanks for your opinion'

So long as people keep paying crazy prices for them the forgers will keep producing. Of course people still think they are getting a bargain and so will keep buying them.

Too true re ebay - I cant foresee any changes but worthy of an email for sure just out of principle.

That fake item sold for $305.

I'd really like to see something done this year about fake signatures and letters on eBay as it appears to be so easy for sellers to knock up an item and find gullible and naive buyers for it.

This seller pretends to have three Tolkien signed letters all to different people for sale, one is a new fake, but the other two fakes have already been discussed, yet eBay does nothing about this (they are just interested in their commission from the sales).

For once, someone is actually honest. Very funny find.

The Nielson BookScan data given in "The Decade Round-Up 2000-2009" (in The Bookseller) differs slightly.

Tolkien is 23rd overall by volume (4.9m)
10th overall by value (£47m)
& the only dead author in this (value) top ten list.
