Not entirely. [In reply to] Can't Post

The Third Age ended in TA 3021 (SR 1421). However, Tolkien seemingly contradicts himself on the beginning of the Fourth Age. In Appendix B (The Tale of Years) he begins it on March 13 in the reckoning of Gondor. But in Appendix D (The Calenders) the New Reckoning starts the Fourth Age on March 25, FA 1 (TA 3021). Is the entry in Appendix B a mistake on Tolkien's part or is it a typographical error?

Tolkien officially ended the Third Age on September 21, when the Ringbearers departed from Middle-earth; as far as the Hobbits were concerned, the Fourth Age began on 2 Yule, 1422. Shire Reckoning continued into the Fourth Age and probably for as long as the Shire endured.
