To my eye and comparing to a few similar signatures I own, looks legit. would love to hear from others here as well who have seen more of C's signatures.

Thanks Dior!; that's a nice clear picture of Christopher's signature. Now where was that spare $6K I had kicking around...

Hello guys,

I just bought a copy of the Silmarillion with a signature of Christopher Tolkien. I have asked the seller more about the provenance and the story behind but waiting for the reply.
Here is the picture of the signature. Does it seems legit to you?

Thank you Stu.
Iit seems that even his early signatures can change from time to time, depending if the signature is for a limited edition (like the Red Silm with more elaborated capital letters) or an autograph. Even on the autograph ones, the "s" and "t from Christopher seem to vary sometime.

Some other opinions ? (Especially from people which have that type of CT's signature?)

Thank you so much in advance :)

Looks good. Is this on the f.f.e.p. of a Billing I assume?
