I have seen a number 1950's versions auctioned off at McTears which is probably the most respected whiskey auctioneer in Scotland. Unfortunately these only make between £50-100 sterling depending on quality and whether it comes boxed or not.

These were for all the bottles marked By Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen

1953 - present

However if you have one which is by

By Appointment to The Late King George VI.

or

By Appointment to His Majesty The King

1936-52

They rise in value.

So have a good read of the lable and make sure you distinguish the fact if you are selling.
