I was pleased to read a post from a brand new member until I read "If It is worth anything".

It is worth drinking, or at least tasting.............. You are a lucky man, and not because those bottles may be worth $$$

Edited to add: I think even Edo would agree with me.

While I know nothing about the value of any of these, I would bet the whiskey in them is fairly tasty.

I've seen pictures before of the Old Crow Traveler and always thought it was pretty cool. I hope someday to come across one of my own.

The Beam Decanters can be worth considerable money if they are unopened and the bottles and art in great shape. The Remington art collection is very collectible. You might try writing to Beam for information on the two beam bottles. I don't know about the others, but I think you should hold on to them and continue to search for information. Otherwise you have some fine whisky from a bygone part of whiskey history. If you aren't a whiskey drinker you might save these bottles for special ocassions with family or friends that do enjoy whiskey. I know if you poured me a strong shot from one of those bottles, I'd be your friend for life.

Enjoy them. They were an important item in your Grandfathers life and I'm sure he would want you to enjoy them in some way and think of him.

Regards,
