I'd stick it on eBay (with shipping worldwide). If you make people here aware of the auction, and perhaps on other Tolkien sites also, I would have thought you will get a fair market price for it at auction. I'd probably even throw a bid in myself :)

Has anyone noticed (recently) that auctions that have finished with a Best Offer having been accepted ("Best Offer Accepted" image below), have actually gone for the full Buy-it-now price ("Buy-it-now" image below) when you use the TCG finished auction function (www.tolkienguide.com/modules/auctions)?

I wonder if the API has changed? eBay doesn't want you to know the best offer price (as they want you to pay more for a similar item). Same as they don't want you to be able to detect shill bidders, etc.

I notice that eBay UK now has that god-awful Global Shipping Program as well. This takes a book that would cost ten pounds to ship to NZ (tracked) cost twenty pounds, take three time as long and quite probably be opened by eBay for re-packing (without the packaging materials).

Summary: Bloody eBay.

If it is http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=21450 , then you should definitely get a bit of interest on eBay, as it is somewhat uncommon.
