Q: I have six decanters from the Jim Beam Collector’s Edition, Volume V. The bottles are decorated with copies of famous works of art by Manet, Rembrandt and Van Gogh. One bottle has been opened. They are all in their original boxes. I’m interested in finding out the value of these decanters.
A: Jim Beam Collector’s Edition decanters were made from 1966 to 1986. Your set, Volume V, was issued in 1970. The first decanters sold for $5.95. They have not gained in value over the years. Any Collector’s Edition decanter currently sells for $5 or less. A set of all six Volume V decanters, with original boxes and matching glasses, recently sold for under $30.
