- what do others think? (I think it's a tad expensive - and - red crayon?)

A "tad" expensive? The signature looks authentic (but would think the seller would have provided a much better photo of it given the item and price!) and the provenance seems believable. As this is a UK auction, "crayon" may have a different meaning in the Queen's English than it does in the US.

And if this goes for the asking price, I'm going to put my signed and inscribed calendar up for half that price!

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Seems way overpriced to me. You could buy multiple signed books and/or letters for the price the seller is asking. I'd rather buy something off of Beren's website; he's selling better stuff and you know that they are real.

Even though I think this letter is overpriced as well, I'd buy this before I bought that signed copy of LOTR: http://cgi.ebay.com/JRR-Tolkien-Signe ... 65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318

Not that I could afford any of this stuff right now. :)

The listing is pretty amateur-ish for book that is priced up (rather hopefuly I feel) at £20K; this is eBay mind you! As Parmastahir says, a better picture of the signature would perhaps be worth the effort baring in mind the price if realised. More interesting is the provenance, and the fact that the guy worked for GA&U, and actually met Tolkien.

(Parmastahir) What does crayon mean in the US?
