The main listing has been pulled, I have also reported the bookplates, but they are still available, sadly one has been sold. If you have not already reported them to Ebay then please do so.

Forged Bookplates

I've heard of forged J. K. Rowling bookplates being sold (in addition to the many forged signatures on Harry Potter books). It's pretty easy to scan a copy of the bookplate since it just has the helm in black and white.

I reported it to eBay too--those listings have to get pulled!

I'm waiting to bid on a signed copy until I see one signed "Turin Turambar." I heard he was at a signing event in Oxford this weekend with his wife.....or was it his sister? I'm not sure.

Saw the items earlier and reported them to Ebay. If a few others also report the items, it may speed up their removal before someone is taken in. (Link to Report Item is at bottom of Auction Listing).

Still, you gotta be a little amused at such a poor effort! LOL!!

This is a bit of a first really for Ebay, I have never before seen someone sell their attempts at forging a signature as bookplates.

How long before the first COH signed by J.R.R. Tolkien appears?
