I figured the poster prints weren't very valuable. I just thought with the board backing and stone inlay it might be a little more rare since I have not been able to find another one like it. I will try to post some pics.

I have a piece of artwork similar to the one on this site...

http://www.tolkienguide.com/modules/w ... d/index.php?page=Sothebys

Lot 145 - [TOLKIEN, J. R. R.] - Cauty, James. "Lord of the Rings," original drawing in ink, pencil and crayon, signed ("Jimmy Cauty"), Kingsbridge, Devonshire, 1975-76, on poster board (29 3/4 x 19 3/4 in.; 753 x 504 mm), mounted to another sheet of poster board; minimal wear at edges.
Estimate: $30,000 - $50,000
Hammer Price with Buyer's Premium: $30,000
21 June 2007 - New York

Mine is identical to the one listed except mine has a diamond (or feak diamond) inlaid where the ring is on Gandolf's hand. Mine aslo has a glossy finish and a black border around the outer edge.

If anyone has info on the rarity or value of the artwork I would greatly appreciate you sharing it.

Thanks
