Here's one, that probably the only difference from the one you posted laurel is the dustjacket, for an absolutely absurd price.

So i just ran across Elwe's post for his 1/1 FOTR and TT that sold for over $2000 a piece, so maybe the ROTK i posted was not priced outrageous...but laurel, where do you think you can get a 1/1 ROTK for 500 pounds?

I think even Elwe will admit he got a very good price for such a book.
As we have discussed before prices and especially on ebay isnt an exact science and thus you will see highly prices books and of course bargains. There have been at least 5 ROTK under £500 sold this year on ebay and I know of at least 4 others sold via other sources.

Of course not to say you will see another or maybe you will that the luck of draw and patience. Maybe others will not agree but £500 for this book is max in my mind.

If you want a ROTK for £500 let me know ;)

You didn't say it had to be a decent copy, did you?
