Those pictures look distorted. Here's a better one -

http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookD ... rtby%3D2%26x%3D31%26y%3D8

(sorry - didn't realize the address was so long. It might be betterto go to abe and search for Tolkien and Bayntun)

The signature looks ok to me - if it were not, it certainly isn't one of the latest batch of bad forgeries. I've seen this set beforeI think; years ago. Come to think of it, I'm not sure if Bayntuns are still going. They are(or were) a firm of high repute. Their work is first class.

Here's a link - http://cgi.ebay.com/Tolkien-Signed-Lo ... tible?hash=item2eaa65b49c

Apart from the obviously fake signature, it seems this might be a rarity - one of fifty copies of the standard 1961 edition of FotR in a readers Union wrapper. (see the Tolkien Illustrated Bibliography)

I saw that too. Delightful! I love the reindeer. But! - note that the lists are written in >gasp< - Blue Ink!!

Does this cast doubt on their validity?

I have one of those signed sheets, too. it's very nice - though in hindsight it might have been better if the seller had printed 'facsimile siganture' on the back. On the other hand; it could be said that it's obviously a copy, because of the 'feel' of the card.
