    I am glad that there is an interest to buy my bottle. Of course, the higher price is better for me, but not only the price…I want to sell it as soon as possible. I have no experience with selling such product so I also appreciate the help and suggestions how to do it.
    Thanks, Lenka

    Hi Andrey,
    I think that we can discuss about selling my bottle. It is good that you are from Germany, it is close to Czech Rep.

    Hi Lenka,
    Although I am in the USA, I will offer 1,200 Euro and shipping to Germany or France, your choice.
    If we reach a deal I will have an associate in Germany get in touch with you and arrange for payment and shipment.

    Hello Lenka,
    My associate will be in Berlin next weekend and said he could arrange to meet you there and pay cash for the cognac. Berlin is 280 km from Prague so not a bad trip by train. If we agree quickly we make it happen.

    Hi Lenka,

    I am ready to offer 1250 euros and I have many friends in the Czech Republic! I can ask them to meet with you to pick up a bottle!
    Also very important that your bottle will always be in my collection, I do not resell as others do! You can see it in the future!

    Best Regards,

    I think it is very nice of Andrey to offer you visitation rights to your cognac after he buys it. Maybe you can have joint custody…
    Instead I will offer you 1,350 Euro cash in person next weekend in Berlin.

    Hi Andrey,
    good idea to meet your friends in Czech. I appreciate that you will keep this bottle. I can meet them anytime…and anywhere (the best is in Prague). Is it possible for you to do it as soon as it will be possible?
    Thanks, Lenka

    Hi Lenka,

    I´m also a german Martell collector since a Long time and I will give you an
    offer for 1.500 euro for this great bottle of Martell. I hope we can create a
    deal regarding this bottle.

    best regards

    Thanks you all for your offers. To be honest, I didn’t know the value of the bottle and I am glad toI have such nice product. As I wrote before, because I need money as soon as possible (I want to leave abroad), I will sell the bottle to the one who can offer not only biggest price but also quicker money transfer (either bank transfer or – better – personally). I am able to bring the bottle to any place in Czech or to the border line (Germany, Austria).
    Thanks you all for understanding….

    Hi Lenka,

    If it´s possible please send me a short feedback regarding my offer. My heart is
    running and I hope we can create this deal. For you and all buyers a great
    start for 2014 with good health and good luck for this new year.

    Best regards

    Hi Lenka,

    Yes, you have an exceptional and rare bottle of cognac! I want it as much as Ralph and Andrey or maybe more. I will offer you 1.600 Euro cash-in-hand next weekend. My colleague from Germany can meet you somewhere between Prague and Berlin. By the way we are looking at keeping this bottle for long term investment not for resale if that is important to you.

    Best regards and happy New Year,
