Have a look at this!!!

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/J-R-R-TOLKIEN-C ... ks_GL?hash=item23058f4811

I'm sure the seller (who made a lot of effort to get a metal case), has also got permission from all the rights holders involved to sell this item and is paying royalties.

I don't understand why eBay gets away with allowing these listings and the recent pathetic typewriter listing and this nonsense at the bottom of the listing, absolute rubbish as far as I can see.

"To Whom It May Concern (inc. Ebay’s VeRo Team and The Publishers Association).

Kindly take note that these recordings are from the Writer’s Original Work, which is now in The Public Domain. They are read by Modern Readers who placed these recordings in The Public Domain. They ARE NOT copies of any other "copyrighted commercially available recordings" and as such they do not infringe any copyrights but are in full accord with Ebay’s policy"

I'd suggest an Auction House to sell this and one that sells quite a lot of signed Tolkien item's like this is Bloomsbury Auctions (http://www.bloomsburyauctions.com) and I'd suggest contacting them for an appraisal.

There may be some interest on this forum in buying this item, so let us know if you decide to sell it through them.

I'm going to make an appeal here.

I am so disgusted by this appalling eBay listing that I would ask any member who has an eBay account to please report this item as a fake to eBay.

Thanks in advance for your help to stop these people.

Worst Tolkien fake item ever on eBay - Please report as fake

This is what I managed to fit in the small number of letters eBay allows when you report an item.

"Typewriter was used to fake Tolkien letters such as this faked Signed Letter.Dr Higgins is also fake".

Well at least we know who faked these letters and the typewriter that was used to do it. I wonder if the Tolkien Estate could take any action against this seller.
