Beverages/Very old bottle of Courvoisier

Question
I have a bottle of Courvoisier Gold in the box that was stored in a basement at least 50 years.  Is there a value for this or a collector?  I can send a photo if necessary.

Answer
Hi Gena

I think this is part of the other question you asked...but just in case!

Distilled spirits are so high in alcohol that they don't change much once they get bottled.  This should be fine to drink, but connoisseurs won't pay extra for the extra age.

Hope you enjoy this---it is delicious, even if it isn't worth a fortune.
