Hennessy XO Value

Resurrecting an old thread from 2013 ( http://www.thecognacforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1236&hilit=Hennessy+valuation ), and looking to obtain current valuation on an old bottle of Hennessy XO that my dad received as a gift some time in the 1950s/possible early 1960s. If you visit the old t...

Re: Valuation Request - Hennessy X.O.

So I've sort of fallen off the radar on this topic - but I still have my dad's two bottles of Hennessey. Any suggestions as to the best way to list them for sale here on the forum?

Re: Valuation Request - Hennessy X.O.

A bit of clarification regarding the age:
I just spoke with my dad and asked him when he received the cognac. He said it was in 1956, and he thinks he received both bottles at the same time (although they could certainly be of different vintage, given the different labels - but 1956 or prior).

Re: Valuation Request - Hennessy X.O.

Hmmm...VERY interesting. You're right - ONE of the two bottles - the one I initially photographed, has the painted-on gold X.O., and the other (the one that I subsequently checked) has the black and gold sticker. I had assumed that the two bottles were entirely identical, but that turns out not to b...

Re: Valuation Request - Hennessy X.O.

The small XO on the bottle is a sticker - not painted on the glass. That said, it's not clear plastic - it's a paper sticker; black and gold ink.

Re: Valuation Request - Hennessy X.O.

I found some new information on dating these bottles. The oval XO sticker changed through the years: Oldest sticker: Black-on-white Newer sticker: Gold-on-Black Newest sticker: Gold-on-transparent This would point to your bottles being more recent than the ones with the portrait... Generation 2 and...

Re: Valuation Request - Hennessy X.O.

[quote="Mikethevike"]Your bottles are very similar but the box design would probably be older. I would guess-timate your bottles to be early 50s Does the glass have the inscription prohibiting reuse? This was mandated by US law from 1932 to 1964 so they should have it. I would estimate val...

Valuation Request - Hennessy X.O.

I'm trying to help my dad put a value on two bottles of Hennessy X.O. that he's had, unopened, for years. I believe he received these as a gift back in the late 50's or early 60's. There are two (2) bottles, both in gift boxes. One box has type on the back; the other is blank. Any information as to ...
