Default Recently Acquired

Hello all. I've been learning a bit recently on older scotches and others. I've only been drinking scotch (and some bourbon) for the past few months, because I found a collection that had been sitting in a basement for a few decades. I took a chance and bought the whole collection, about 18 bottles. Most of them are only worth today's value, but there are a few I'd like to research more. I had two sealed bottles of Jack in the cameo box from '68 that I sold to double my money right off the bat, so I'm happy I took the risk. Now I just want to take my time with the rest of it to learn what to do with it all.

Also, I really enjoy a good scotch. I'm here to learn more about that as well.

The ones I'd like to ask questions about, though: I have 5 bottles of Haig & Haig. Two are taller bottles with pinched sides. One of them is out of the box, one is still in and wrapped, so I can not take a picture of the bottle. Both 4/5 quart.

The other three of these are the old pinch bottles, all in the original boxes with the wire net still intact.

All 5 of these are 86 proof, and all 5 are sealed/full.


The next three are bottles of Johnnie Walker Black. One is a 4/5 quart in a white gift box with a silver stamp seal on the front and a scottish green/blue ribbon seal. Someone along the lines opened the box, but the tax stamp is there, bottle is full. There are two bottles that are 1 litre, in gold boxes, tax stamped, sealed.

I have pictures of all of this. Sorry for the long post. Pictures will sum up, if it was too long and you didn't read it.

I sure can!
I've got this bottle of Old Forester in a really cool decanter, with an envelope to mail off to convert it into a lamp for a few bucks, if anyone knows anything about that. Printed on the tax stamp: 05569862

Here's that Old Forester.
Apparently I'm also blind. It has two dates on the tax stamp: Made Fall 1958 and Bottled Fall 1964

I'm not sure I want to sell that one. Trying to learn more about what I have before I do any of they.

It would be the three pinch bottles and the tall gift box. Let me try to check on shipping. Are you still interested?

Nobody has given me any clue as to what these may be worth, or when they're from.
