These are the letters that David Miller withdrew from sale last year after problems with the text and signature.

They are remarkably similiar to the "Higgins" and "Hooper" letters and I suspect all these "letters" could all be done by the same person, and I am sure that is not Tolkien.

Not really sure now if these have already been posted (perhaps we should have a more systematic way of doing this?), but anyway, what do people think about these:

The Hobbit Signed J.R.R. Tolkien Lord of the Rings
JRR Tolkien Handwritten Letter Signed Autographed ALS

(I know that bidding has already ended for them, but I am still interested to know if they might be authentic)

The Michael Tolkien book is certainly authentic - I have one or two examples myself. I know the vendor; he's a good honest dealer.

Agree with garm. This dealer is good and always honest when i have had dealings with him. Bit pricey but a nice book with history

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

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/JRR-Tolkien-Cut ... ain_0?hash=item53deae63ac

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.
