Time for eBay - "Unique! One of a kind! ULTRA RARE! Worth meeeellions!!!"


Well in eBay terms it is not Unique (only 2 copies known so far, Unique on eBay usually means less than 1000 exist) and it it must be worth gazillions being super Ultra Rare. Or worth nothing as a misprint

I am sure you are correct, as it is such an obvious flaw.

Anybody else has this flaw? Andrew

If anyone is interested in this item (I am not) then please see this sale on eBay.

Looks comparable to http://www.tolkienbookshelf.com/si/000978.html

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOLKIEN-HOB ... ction&hash=item2568104d1d



I went to Alex's talk at Oxonmoot last weekend, probably will not bother in future years, poorly argued and not convincing.

If people have this edition, can they check page 169 to see if they have the same printing error as in this picture and my copy.

This is the other copy on eBay

It is meant to say Kôr.

Still no clearer as to what they were for, but it does seem that quite a lot of these stickers were used in the late 1970's and they are not particularly rare. Thanks all for help with this.
