      Hi Steve,

      These bottles aren’t rare in England, though they may be more so where you are – New Zealand? The rarest ones are the earliest, which have rough pontil scars on the base. A collector might pay upward of £10 for one of those, I guess, but I’m not really an expert on the value of these items.
