"Or is it simply a collector's item?"
... I'm not sure if I fully understand what those words, in that order, mean.

Time for a Khamûl day-off list of historical prices, I feel...

Here are the prices I've noted for deluxe HoME volumes I've seen for sale, over the last couple of years, on eBay. I'm sure I've missed dozens of listings (especially Buy-it-now listings), but I'm pretty confident I've caught most auction listings with "Tolkien" in the listing description. Almost all of these copies (books & slipcases) were described as in "as new" condition (as with most deluxe HoME volumes for sale); some of them were still sealed. (I think I only noted one auction where this wasn't the case; with the slipcase being described as only "G".) Bracketed non-UK prices ("E" is euro btw) also reflect the location of some of the items; this may, or may not, have had an influence (shipping etc) on the final price(s) realised.

Vol. I:
2011 £381($610), £500, £342($531)
2012 £286($462)
2013 Nothing noted
2014 £225

Vol. II:
2011 £226($350), £227($352), £157(E188), £167(E200), £168(E201)
2012 £195, £183, £135($218)
2013 £117
2014 Nothing noted

Vol. III:
2011 £122, £117, £175, £194($300), £194($302), £140(E168), £123(E148), £122(E146)
2012 £210, £129, £101($163)
2013 Nothing noted
2014 £190

Full Set (three volumes):
2011 Nothing noted
2012 Nothing noted
2013 £780 "Best offer" accepted; full price unrecorded
2014 £815($1350) "Best offer" accepted; this also, it should be noted, inc. a matching LR + H (both 1st imp.); Buy-it-now was $1750(~£1055)

Analysis & comment to follow...

I too saw this (re-listed; no buyers first time around) & found the marginalia very interesting. Not sure if it's interesting enough to make me want to buy it, but interesting nonetheless. I've been looking for copies of The Silmarillion with contemporary marginalia for quite some time (as early reception of the book itself; & marginalia [as something some readers do] is something I'm very interested in); never seen any copies though...
