I have tested this with a lot of my own auctions and it always worked. I always offer my items with Buy-it-now & Best Offer and after the auction I print a copy for my records. And the price is always the one I have accepted before. So for me it works fine.


Does it behave in the same fashion for someone other than the seller, though?

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.
