The seller has now listed the item three times on eBay, each without success: here, here, and here. The relistings omit the Buy It Now option.

They are not the same letters, the first one is a Higgins and the second two are the same Hooper letter.

Could not agree more.

I reported them as they were re-listed plus the latest travesty.

Sorry, our mistake.

With regards to the latest forgery:

These books were issued in 1978, some 5 years after Tolkien had passed away. Quite a miracle if he managed to sign them for beyond the grave.

The wording is the key to it
'inserted'

ie what the seller is trying to suggest is that the books werent signed yet the pictures were.

of course they were !!

No need to apologise, I did not mean it that way, but that the letters are so terrible that they all look the same.
