Generally, most of the fraudulent letters use blue ink for the signature, though not all letters signed in blue are "fakes." That one there is certainly not signed by Tolkien. I believe this letter was discussed on this forum somewhere when it first came up for sale on eBay(?).

I have no problem with a signature that has been lain in, but I think almost everyone would agree that they would prefer to own an item that has actually been signed in the book.

Cool item, nonetheless, but way above my price range as well...

Here is a real quality copy of Farmer Giles. So sad...
