Re: 1954 crown royal bottle
My best guess would be that the value (with the original carton) is around $60-120 (depending on if you find the right buyer or not)
Maybe one of the Canadian members here have more information on the value?
I did a quick search on ebay:
There is currently a 1958 bottle with $40 as the highest bid.
There is also a 1965 bottle with $67 as the highest bid.
Maybe you should get a few more bottles from the 50ies and 60ies and start a collection?
