Okay, I've reported it. I think Trotter's previous post (in Tolkien Signature) contains the best advice about how to report. (Counterfeits and copyright violations > Bootlegs and counterfeit media > Counterfeit autographs) In the free type section I merely typed "The signature is a forgery".

Incidentally, Laurel you are responsible for starting all these seperate threads (& discussions)! (This is getting silly!!!!!! & Tolkien Signature)

We should perhaps restrict discussion to the two original (Jlong) threads (including any new eBay listings under suspicion), to avoid all these multiple threads discussing (essentailly) the same thing:

Another Tolkien eBay Letter -for letters
Tolkien Signatures on eBay??? -for any other signatures

I've gone link mad! Off to report all those silly letters...

Thread, no thread. Replies, no replies. I feel like Oogway in Kung Fu Panda. :)

I can create a subforum specifically for eBay item reporting if we want. We want?

Sounds like a good idea Jeremy
At least we could all post and it would central in one file

I'd like a forum that we can say this item is a fake, please report to eBay, the more reports the better.

Another Higgins letter, can't remember seeing this piece of rubbish before as so many have turned up recently.

"This listing has been removed"

Now, does this mean that someone is getting wise to these listings and something is being done about it? I wonder ...

Hi This was sellers response to last Higgins letter:

'Thank you very much for your message. I bought this book with his letter in Ebay long time ago. I am not a expert, but it looks like a true item. Some time ago I bought a artwork in Ebay too, a lot of people told me that is was a fake... finally it was a real item, sometimes you must think that there are a lot of economical interest in some forums, buyers, etc. Just give me a real proof about this. Thank you !!'


Since then it has been removed. I did point out the errors within the listing and that people far more knowledgeable than me have serious doubts over Dr Higgins. Hey presto ! One less on open market is all that matters

For the record, this was the response I received when I inquired about the item's provenance: "I bought it in a [sic] anticuary in UK."
