Recently got given this bottle which used to belong to my great Uncle.
Was just wondering how old it is? And maybe the monetary value.
I can upload more pictures if it will help with the identification process.
I dont get involved in these questions much as I am just a home winemaker but the thing that sticks out most to me is the top on this bottle. The ones selling today have black tops. But still I dont think there is anything to special about this bottle as it is still produced today selling from $30.00 - $70.00.
PM james on this site he may know how long ago they changed the tops.
This bottle really interested me so I looked a little I found that bottle but it has 70 proof on label at action for 203 pounds

I have also seen some not selling at all
I did find this and looking at the bottom of the bottle puts when the bottle could have been produced, They had merged already
, John Walker &
Sons had merged with the Distillers Co. Ltd.,
to extend distribution throughout the world.
The arrangement, begun in 1925, lasted until
the late 1980s
Cheers for the quick response Bob.
Well I was planning on drinking it but one of my good friend's cousins wants to buy it.
What do you think would be a fair price in Australian dollars? (My great uncle must've brought it back from Scotland)
James tells me that all these things are worth a $100.00 us But looks like that bottle is averaging about $150.00 US. I am not collector but just doing a little research on that bottle that is what I found.
oh. yes i got one from my grandfather .how old it is now? thanks
I have a similar bottle too which i have it since the 70s or 80s (cant quite recall) and am quite surprise by it's worth mentioned here. I have check wiki and it mentioned the "Extra Special" is produce between 1906-08. Not sure if its true.
Good to know more on this though.
