HP 1952 G&M ~ 400 Euro with perfect fill (with low shoulder fill probably only half of that)

HP 1967 OB ~ 350 Euro (the bottle was sold in the box you have)

prices are buyers prices at auction - sellers prices are 15%-20% below that

The prices seem very fair. Same about the neck fill on the 1952 HP.

Adrian .. I thought you had only just started to collect whisky.

If you are buying these and want our advice ... Just ask!

Don't buy the 1952 unless it's for drinking.

The 1967 ... Yes buy that!

Christopher aka The Dog

PS .. If you are selling ... Hold off if you can. I have come to the conclusion there us a Polarised Whisky Market with a flight to quality. In these economic times .. These bottles will not achieve their potential .

Seriously no offence but if you've only started collecting you should already know how much they are worth as you've recently bought them.
