Here is a good one to discuss:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/J-R-R-Tolkien-o ... ction&hash=item4aa6849b97

Thoughts ?
I appreciate it comes from a good source but would like to hear views on it?
Is price realistic?

It was discussed here (in the members section)

http://www.tolkienguide.com/modules/n ... =ASC&type=&mode=0&start=0

and I notice it is still on Beren's site (http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/collect ... /object11/description.htm)

The summary is that it is not considered to be a genuine signed item.

got the message... really should have fixed that! Now I see why! Time give me more time...

Guess I'm going to end up in the grave one day and there will be a text written on my grave: "had too many ideas and too little time for one live.."

will try and fix it asap!

My gut feeling is that not only is it fake, but it's not even a good fake. It's a shame that someone pulled this out of a 1954 FotR. I am definitely in agreement that this cannot be Tolkien's writing.
