The Michael Tolkien item is definitely legitimate.

Although I haven't seen this particular item, orcraider has sold two Michael Tolkien items (on eBay) very recently both of which I had offered to me privately from a reputable PBFA/ABA book dealer. I know this dealer sold one or two through eBay, back in late 2007, and presume orcraider bought a few of these at that time. That aside, orcraider is an honest and reliable dealer; to be highly recommended.

What do you guys think of this one?

There sure have been a lot of "supposed" signed Tolkien items on eBay lately.

I think the description is nothing more or less than a shaggy dog story. Nice picture; shame about the forged signature.

Yet another signature

but even with its 'guarantee', which is completely worthless in this context, does not look very good

That signature is horrible and they didn't even spell the word "guarentee" correctly. I feel like I've seen something like this before.
