Not being able to get to that side of the world, I am dying for peoples' impressions of the get-together. Thanks already for Deagol for his tidbits!

What do you guys think of this signature? John F. R. circa 1992 if it is valid (I think so, but would love others to give their opinions.)

Hi Andrew,

thanks for the information! And my apologies for the delay in getting your post up on the boards (non-member posts have to be hand approved due to the quantity of spam). I look forward to reading the book.

David Brawn at HarperCollins had some more information for me:

The ring was a promotional item produced for the film tie-in books. It was a competition prize for an overseas book retailer, I think in Canada, and only a few were produced. It may well have been 200, as you say, though my recollection is that it was a much smaller number. Unfortunately, I do not have a record of which retailer or how many, and we did not keep any copies - in fact, I don't think I ever saw the actual item. A lot of competition-based promotions took place, including winning flights to New Zealand, but none of the marketing team who worked on the promotions are still with us.

I appreciate that isn't very helpful, but it was such a busy time. Promotional items were never intended to be of long-term interest or any financial value.


Anyone from Canada remember seeing these? It would be interesting to track down any ephemera (articles, advertising materials, etc.) that actually mention the ring. If we can find out what retailer ran the promotion I can probably dig further.

Hi Remy,

I hadn't heard of the ring before, and haven't been able to track down more informatin yet. Would you be willing to provide images of the ring and box for the guide database?

I'll keep digging.
