The spam filter for comments is working now, but when I posted the first comment it didn't appear, so I tried to re-post but got a message saying the comment was already there.

The other trouble I sometimes have with this type of system is that the words are sometimes difficult to read. You can refresh the image, so it only a minor irritation.

Not long ago I was playing around with comment spam filters for Wordpress and found something called JS SpamBlock (v1.4). It is invisible to users if they have a browser that can handle javascript, otherwise they just have to type in a number. It seems to be 99.9% effective.

I will try to get some listed over the weekend. The extra 2 or 3 feet of shelf space is desparately needed!

Mmmmmm... Hobbitses. Tasty hobbitses.

Let me know when you put them up for sale and I can list them here as well (like I did for Wellinghall) if you want.

I checked ebay daily for about 6 years, but got out of the habit late last year when I was busy with TolkienBooks (and short of money!).

I have been checking on a weekly basis recently. As well as some wide ranging searches based on ones around at TolkienCollector.com, I have about 30 saved searches looking for more specific items.

I sell occasionally, not much of late, but there is a big pile that I need to sell to make some more room - including some nice Hobbits!

Update - the final hammer price was $21,000 so including the 20% buyers premium someone paid a total of $25,200 for the set.

Not a bad price for all three, I think. I hope they end up in a good home.
