Thanks, Wellinghall. Oddly, I can find nothing about Bayntuns on the net. It's good to know they're still going.

Bayntun are still going - I pass their shop every time I go into Bath by train. I have to try very hard to stop myself going in!

Those pictures look distorted. Here's a better one -

http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookD ... rtby%3D2%26x%3D31%26y%3D8

(sorry - didn't realize the address was so long. It might be betterto go to abe and search for Tolkien and Bayntun)

The signature looks ok to me - if it were not, it certainly isn't one of the latest batch of bad forgeries. I've seen this set beforeI think; years ago. Come to think of it, I'm not sure if Bayntuns are still going. They are(or were) a firm of high repute. Their work is first class.

This is not on Ebay but I hope it's ok to post in this thread anyway. What do people think about this signature:

It is the same seller as the last 'picture' as the text is virtually identical but a different eBay account.

Fake 1

Fake 2

http://cgi.ebay.com/ANTIQUE-PENCIL-SK ... wings?hash=item45efe9d072

I'm going to report this seller as well to eBay.
