I'm not sure if this counts as a lucky find but my wife was clearing out some old boxes and found these -

I remember buying them when a teenager at the same time I bought my first Silmarillion (1977, so I was 16). I even have the original envelopes that came with the cards. I thought they were long gone, lost when we moved house, so I was thrilled when she dug them from the bottom of a box and showed them to me. Now if she can only find my 1978 Silmarillion Calendar that I would have thought was lost at the same time!

P.S. First time posting photos, please let me know if I've done anything wrong.

Anyone nab this one on eBay. I think I was a few minutes too late.

I'm pretty sure it was listed yesterday at some point. To be honest I don't think the price is that incredible. I mean, if that boxset (which does admittedly look in lovely condition; as do all the books) is a set of later impressions, then it's not that unusual to see it go for £10-20. Ditto The Silmarillion --if it's a reprint then I'm not sure you'd be paying that much for it.

I have a spare one of these (the LotRs boxset that is), if anyone wants it...
