Well I believe he has been in contact with family members and has provenance for the items. Also know several auction houses have already shown interest ... anyways, just a little positive critique.

Members of which family. I wonder? His own, perhaps? But seriously; if he'd got provenance from members of the Tolkien family, wouldn't it make sense to say so up front? Or are we just going to get 'after-the-fact' details like this, every time someone here raises legitimate questions?

The longer this goes on, the iffier it gets, IMO.

I haven't gone to the listing --but if I had made an offer (like "Bruce"), I'd be pretty unimpressed with the details being publically posted in the Q&A section of eBay. That aside, I'm sure auction houses are interested in the stuff --it's a good time, I'd think, to be selling Tolkien stuff. Agree with garm though --why conceal provenance? You don't need to give details, just state that more details can be provided if a buyer is seriously interested.

Sorry but what a load of rubbish!
I bet this seller never reappears on this forum. I am tempted to put an offer in at £49,000 and watch what happens ! Anyone like to bet against him accepting ! I think not.
As to Bruce - sounds like Bruce Wayne to me ! ooo wasnt he fictional
Feel better now
