Bell's Old Scotch Whiskey

Postby naturekiwi » Fri Mar 03, 2006 4:38 am

I have just inherited 6 bells still full and sealed they have been in the family for about 30 years they are from very small 50mlx2,187.5mlx2,300ml, 500ml a wee bit faded on the labels but in good condition. I was told that about 18 years ago my mum was offered $20,000 by an american visitor. Can anyone help me find the true value of these bells

$20,000 18 years ago seems rather excessive for such small bottles. I can't imagine they'd be that valuable, but i'm no expert.

If you look on ebay you will see an over abundance of these Bell's from all ages. I think the market has changed with the advent of the internet, many, many of them go unsold.
