Yeh, I'd wait for the predictable HC sale. They'll undoubtedly have 30% again at some point, and the Super Deluxe volumes are never excluded. £245 is not bad with zero postage. Number will be pretty high thought I guess...

You could make that spending pot a little bigger if you'd only sell me that 1978 Silmarillion production mock-up you have squirreled away!

Okay, I've reported it. I think Trotter's previous post (in Tolkien Signature) contains the best advice about how to report. (Counterfeits and copyright violations > Bootlegs and counterfeit media > Counterfeit autographs) In the free type section I merely typed "The signature is a forgery".

Incidentally, Laurel you are responsible for starting all these seperate threads (& discussions)! (This is getting silly!!!!!! & Tolkien Signature)

We should perhaps restrict discussion to the two original (Jlong) threads (including any new eBay listings under suspicion), to avoid all these multiple threads discussing (essentailly) the same thing:

Another Tolkien eBay Letter -for letters
Tolkien Signatures on eBay??? -for any other signatures

I've gone link mad! Off to report all those silly letters...

We may also send your report to the rights owner for review. -eBay

This also seems slightly pointless. Are they going to send all this crap to Christopher, and ask him if he thinks it's genuine?

I have to admit, I don't look at most of this stuff now, so don't get that annoyed by it. But maybe I should start reporting (something I've never done.) It's all (in the long term) damaging for the collecting community.

Maybe, if Trotter's private forum idea is set up, we can have an official discuss (& assuming it's an agreed fake) & report, where everyone makes an effort to report the item/seller; keeping tabs on regular fakers, and petitioning eBay to have their accounts closed (for all it's worth.)

Also Trotter, I think you're right about him not being well (enough) known. (And, his signature genuinely doesn't add significant value to an item.) But others (fakers) may think otherwise. People will have heard of his name associated with the Jackson films, and may believe it worth faking to add value/appeal.
