It is also worth pointing out that you should buy from a seller with a clear easy to use return policy in the event you discover a problem with the signature. Sellers such as Beren offer this.

However, having read all the waffle on the sellers website about signatures, a long example below

http://www.guaranteedautographs.com/custserv.html

I'd never buy a 'signed' item from anyone who makes these overly complicated demands to question the authenticity of a signature that they have sold.

SATISFACTION ASSURANCE: However, if any autographed item we sell is ever found not to be authentic by a certified and court qualified forensic handwriting examiner, we will gladly refund the purchase price. I will promptly refund your money if you return the item, along with the original paperwork and a letter from a certified and court qualified forensic handwriting examiner stating that the item purchased is not authentic.The inspection of the item must be done in person and not evaluated using the internet or scans or photos.It can not be a standard rejection form letter used by dealers for items you are attempting to sell to them. The certified and court qualified authenticator will evaluate the autograph using standard nondestructive techniques of forensic document examination which include a macroscopic evaluation with calipers, protractors, photocopies and their enlargements, along with computer enhancements and computer enlargements. You will pay the authenticator for his services. This guarantee is good forever.

This is horribly off-topic, but I've got a few non-Tolkien items up on eBay at the moment. Seller ID there is also wellinghall.

Thanks, Trotter - and, it's as well for potential buyers to remember this caveat, also from Beren's page -

"Always remember that Tolkien did not autograph many books and most of the authographs can be found on UK editions, seldom they are seen on US editions (allthough there are exceptions). Even the most genuine looking authograph could be a fake in the end, so buying signed books stays a tricky business."

Look at the third signature from the bottom in Beren's article.

The autograph which started it all... it was the first fake signature that appeared on a website claiming to be a true signature. This one has been seen many, many times reproduced (especially on cut cards)

Yep, definitely fakes.
