The irony for me is the seller went to all of the work of making it look real with the supposed letter of provenance from Arthur C. Clarke and then you mess up on the one thing that matters most--the actual book.

I realize this isn't Tolkien, but it is so bad I had to post it. At first, the listing looks somewhat legit, but look at the two pictures of the signature.

Notice anything...

Just goes to show that even with a supposed provenance, a signature could still be fake.

I'm beginning to have less and less faith in eBay.

For the record, this was the response I received when I inquired about the item's provenance: "I bought it in a [sic] anticuary in UK."
