Generally, most of the fraudulent letters use blue ink for the signature, though not all letters signed in blue are "fakes." That one there is certainly not signed by Tolkien. I believe this letter was discussed on this forum somewhere when it first came up for sale on eBay(?).

Red,

Have a look at this article from Beren's website.

http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/9 ... ke_Tolkien_Signatures.php

and you will notice a strong similarity between the eBay item and the contents of the article. I would not recommend anyone buys this letter.

Gandolf's Teapot. Anyone care to comment on this? Personally, I am at a complete loss.

I can't wait to find Gandalf's typewriter on eBay, I'm sure it must be out there somewhere.
