Hi guys. Little help please. Probably going to put this on ebay. Any idea of what it might be worth (I was thinking £90 - ish) ?

i got one of them from ebay myself a few months back for mid 40's including P+P, i thought it would have been worth about 90-100 myself but was shocked when i got it so cheap, dont know if it was just luck that i got it so cheap or if it was a slow day or what.

Don't like the sound of £45 much :( Thanks for the heads up - I'll put a reserve / high starting bid on this one.

i ment to add that you put a reserve on it, but you know that.
if it was me, i wouldnt sell it for £40, id drink it first, it all depends on whos on as its ending or if you get a bidding war.

Absolutely - I'll drink it at £40, for sure.

Seeing as the new pretty 1979 is over £80 retail, I'd be very suprised if the older (and some may say nicer) went for much less.

Then again it doesn't have a pretty swirly B on the glass.

Gone on - drink it - you know you want to!

the new 79 (3rd edition)retails for about £80, but in some of the shops you can still buy the second edition 1979 as a 26yo for £55ish
