One of  readers has this Prince Hubert de Polignac cognac bottle at home in Center Hill, Florida, USA. The Reader writes “This bottle was handed down to my daughter and me by my father who said he’d planned to open and drink it when he sold his automotive repair business to retire. He never did drink it since he’d gone sober in the meantime. My father inherited it from either his father’s family, mother’s family or step-father’s family all of whom emigrated from Europe. I don’t drink Cognac but I’m sure someone out there would treasure this and/or drink it since it appears rather old. I’m hoping you can identify the year of this bottle as well as it’s value.”

    this bottle is from the late 70’s to early 80’s as it is 750ml rather then 4/5qt, looking at the picture it looks like the level is high shoulder rather then into the neck, if you can please add a picture clearly showing the level. also you said it comes in a wooden box that is marked ” DYNASTIE EXTRA, Cognac Prince Hubert de POLIGNAC. ” if this was a dynastie extra bottle it should say that on the label also and it should be numbered, my guess is that the box was for a different bottle, please add some pictures of it also
