Ha! Just as I am coming round to everyone's ideas, here is a book now worth £2000 approx? OK, I get the stuff about how limited it was (read the post on this forum from a year or so back), but still, how can anyone say CoH would not double in value in ten years, when you look at the Silmarillion Super Deluxe! BTW, a lovely looking book!

I think you will get a general agreement on this, the 1982 Super Deluxe Silmarillion, ideally signed, my copy is not signed, as an aside it is possible to have signed copies by Christopher Tolkien of all four Super Deluxe books(The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, Children of Húrin and The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún).

So come on Trotter - which IS the best Super Deluxe you own?

I think you should open it, I really like my opened copy and think out of the four Super Deluxe editions I own it is one of the best (though not the best).

In my opinion, the CoH is worth £250 if sealed, and the S&G perhaps £180 tops. That's as a non-clued up newbie who buys based on what he thinks the books are worth to him!
