Some years ago I herited a bottle of Haig's Gold Label. Examining the bottle gave me no clue how old it might be, but the condition of the labels and the kind of closure look ancient somehow. I examined the coat of arms on th e front label. Though it is printed rather coarse you can still distinguish the Lion and the Chained Unicorn.
It is the Royal Coat of Arms, that thas been in use since 1837.
So it won't help us to decide whether Her Majesty in this case is Elizabeth II or Victoria.
On the rear side we find a diamond shaped label. Though it is free from any hint, the first sentence cannot be published too often:
Very special I found the closure. It is a kind of flip wire cap I never encounterd before. Originally it had been sealed with a capsule made of distinctively embossed tin foil.
So, anyone who has got an idea of the bottles issuing date, or the (roughly) estimated value? (Imagined, the bottle was originally sealed?)
Thanks again in advance
(***Rem.: Theft is useless! The bottle is EMPTY!***)
