    This bottle is from 1960-1968: Before 1960 ribbon would be riveted to the capsule after 1968 Joseph Garneau would have been the importer.
    I further put it in the second half of that period (1964-1968) as the ribbon does not extend under the second label (Would be visible in space between the two labels)
    Very nice collectible cognac. I will offer you $450 + shipping cost.

    Hi Paul,
    I thought we had a deal but I never got an E-mail directly from you? Did you get my contact info from Jacqueline? Did your E-mail get lost?
    Just wanted to make sure we are not just waiting for each other.
