It sold for $375, out of interest, in February (same sale that laurel mentioned), a very bad investment IMHO.

I forgot to mention that this picture appears on Beren's web site in his article

I would not even consider buying an alleged Tolkien signed item that is that size and as cut down as that.

If this is just part of the item then you need to post a picture of all of it for any assistance.

This question comes up regularly.

Unlike philately where errors are much prized, they are not in books and will usually reduce the value of the book to nothing.

If this is a new book from Easton Press, then I would see if they would replace it for you.

J.R.R. TOLKIEN. An autograph letter signed November 19, 1957, creator of a whole new world in his epic The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Tolkien writes, in a self-deprecating fashion, to Professor Przemyslaw Mroczkowski, Polish historian of English Literature, "My wife and I are very gratified for your invitation [from] you and your wife. I would, of course, but for the thought of the trouble we should be giving, be far more pleasant to have lunch chez vous." "I am dreadfully sorry that we cannot manage this Tuesday; but I do hope that you will find a chance to ask us again! (If I go to America at all, I will not be until the middle of March at the earliest). This is a very crowded week, and my wife is unfortunately not able to do many things (pleasant or otherwise) in succession. Tuesday is quote a good day usually." "I do not understand your use of 'bold'! It is extraordinarily kind of you both to bother about us. We are quite unimportant people. And I do hope that I have been bold enough to address you as a colleague without title. You will please do the same to me."
