One of our readers from New York, USA has this Martell Cognac Bottle to offer.
He writes: “My father was given several cases of Martell as Christmas Presents over a few years during the early 1960’s. He enjoyed a few bottles and the rest have been sitting there ever since. He died in 1985 and I just recently came to stay with my mother who is now 87 years old and found them again.”

    This style bottle was introduced by Martell in 1968 – It is a 3-star cognac. Unfortunately not worth a lot. I have a few bottles myself and I paid $60 each for them. You may be able to get $75…
    Do you have the boxes? That adds some value. A full case would sell for $800-$900.
