The retail value of a bottle of Offley 1966 VP in good condition (good level, label, storage) is around £120; any faults (lower level, poor label, seepage) would reduce that. As a private seller, you would probably expect to achieve around half of that (see here for our standard advice to sellers including reasons for this, if you've not seen this already). Depending on the exact condition of your bottle, plus any delivery issues, you might therefore expect to achieve £50-60 for the bottle.

Also, to attract buyers here you might wish to mention where you are — or, more relevantly, where is the bottle. UK? USA? In either case, roughly where within?

Easy to confuse Watford, Hertfordshire with Watford City, North Dakota.

My error, sorry.

No interest from me: I live quite some distance from North Dakota.
