Very collectible and drinkable
Polignac brand still exists, part of the "Mounier" group.
Today they are considered "supermarket products" but in the middle of 20th century they were "suppliers of his Majesty the King of Denmark", sign of high quality product.
The king of Denmark, Christian X, died in 1947, and his son, Frederik IX, died in 1972. Impossible to know which of the them the labels refers to...
The 2 bottles are quite different, different glass, different sealings, a bit different collar and front labels.
Labels as seen, very damaged.
Levels are good for such old bottles.
The tin foils are different, the left typically "1950's" in tin colour & gilt, the other later version, more 1960's type. Marked "Prince H. de Polignac COGNAC"
both good condition.
The older bottle has the "ball" in the bottom, typical of old bottles.
Bottles are tested for 48h and NOT leaking, but if they are shipped by air, maybe the depressurization can cause a few drops to escape - I therefore cover the caps with parafilm, which will prevent leakage. But levels are so nice that the corks must still be in very good condition.
content probably 70cl, ABV probably 40% as there is no indications of either - 30cm high and 1260g each
