They might have other priorities than investigating on an old bottle they sold, so do not be surprised if you do not get any answer.
The history about vintages can be found in the book "Ballantines story"http://www.whisky-news.com/En/literature6.html
In US$, I would be willing to pay $180 for this bottle, since the filling level seem slightly low (below shoulder) but if you find the right person you might get more.
