Our reader tells us:

I have 2 sealed Croizet VSVP Cognac bottles in excellent condition still contaning the tax stamp. They have been in the family for at least 60 years and in my possession for the last 10 years.

Croizet VSVP Cognac

While living in Milwaukee, WI., my aunt and uncle lived in an apartment complex. The residents stored their overflow of belongings in the basement. Some boxes that were left behind were given to my aunt by the complex owner. In one of the liquor boxes, were these 2 Cognac VSVP bottles. About 10 years ago my aunt gave these bottles to my mother, who gave them to me.

    This is the same as VSOP just a different way to spell it. Bottles are from late 1960s. Worth about $60-$70 each.
