Depending on the condition of the label, the level, if the seals are intact, and so on, it would be worth in the range of $60 to $200, depending on who happens to be buying at the time. On e-Bay I have seen these price ranges. Crown Royal seems to be quite collectible and very popular on e-Bay and some of the auctions get quite exciting.
In 1964 Crown Royal was distilled at the Waterloo distillery. Whisky from this distillery has a lot of cachet as the distillery had a very good reputation and is no longer around. Nowadays Crown Royal is distilled in Gimli Manitoba. As well, the formula for Crown Royal has changed over the years. Gradually younger and younger whiskies have crept into the blend. In the 1960s the youngest whisky in Crown Royal was 10 years old and the various component whiskies ranged up to 30 years and sometimes older.
The basic Crown Royal is now called Crown Royal Deluxe and there are 5 other versions, each more expensive and each older than the Deluxe. The bottle you have was the only Crown Royal available at the time it was made.
