The same letter was offered on eBay almost a year ago by "classic_art_uk". We commented in this thread.

Here's an opportunity to buy a "Tolkien" signature for cheap!

Last year, the bidding started at $800, with Buy It Now at $1,500, versus the current $599.99 and $699.99.

It is sad to see that The Tolkien Estate have no problem with fake Tolkien signatures being sold, as they do nothing to stop them.

It's unfair to say that Estate "have no problem" with this, since none of us is privy to the many actions they take quietly and privately - in so far as they can take them. (Is a fake Tolkien letter a fraud against the Estate, or against whomever is foolish enough to buy it?)

He does not have any incentive to stop as he always sells the fakes. He will carry on indefinitely.

Hello, All. I am listing a few interesting Tolkien books for sale on Ebay right now, and I will be adding a few more in the next day or so. Please take a look when you get a chance. Also feel free to PM me if interested in any of my offerings. I am always happy to deal outside of ebay.

P.S. If anyone finds serious errors or typos in my listings, please let me know. Using one auction as a template and editing it for additional auctions usually is a recipe for mistakes. Thanks in advance!
