A reader has a cognac bottle of Rémy Martin Louis XIII at home.
The bottle is located in Vermont. The Reader writes “Given to my father in late 1973 at an advertising meeting as a gift to celebrate the birth of me. Because of its sentimental value my mother never let my father open it. We contemplated opening it this Christmas, but decided to see what its value is before we make that decision.”

    I have a similar bottle- but no case. I have the stopper also. The only issue is that some of the crystal fins on the side are broken. Is anyone still interested in buying? I am on Long Island in New York.
