Value of 1956 half gallons of Seagrams Crown Royal

Customer Question

I have two half-gallons of Seagram’s Crown Royal, unopened, with the taxstamps on the neck of the bottles dating 1956. they were in my grandma’s basement since 1962, and I found them when cleaning up. The basement was temp controlled and they are in very nice, practically-new condition, complete with the blue cloth bags and a little pamphlet ’A Gift For a King". I have asked several people about an approximate worth, or if there is even a market for this kind of thing, with no luck so far. Any ideas? Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

 Mike, You may want to try to contact Seagrams as they may be interested in purchase.  Or you want want to try a liquor auction?  Here is some links on ebay which may help give a ballpark figure of empty bottles. You may be onto something with full ones though.  I will keep looking...

Reply to Eric's Post: Eric, I have sent emails to Seagrams customer relations, and they directed me (with a kind of, form letter format) to contact Kovel's...which I did, and their experts were wine experts with no experience whatsoever in liqour, whiskey, bourbon etc. However, you mentioned "liquor auction" and that sounds promising...I did not know there was such a thing.

 Hello,   I found this site to be interesting on antique Seagrams bottles and other Seagram collectables.

Reply to Sally's Post: Sally,

Thanks for your reply...I have had discussions with Ebay at length pertaining to these bottles, they are only interested in the bottles themselves, not the contents, and the empty bottles only have a nominal value. I've even tried Kovel's...their experts are wine experts, with no experience or insight whatsoever into liquor, whiskey etc.
