The HF&B is definitely the prize of the bunch, a beautiful whiskey. All I've seen are puce or claret in color and usually bring in the neighborhood of the prices being mentioned, depending of course on the condition. I don't know if I've ever seen a perfectly mint example. Yours sure looks great from a distance. I'd love to see more pictures of it. If it checks out as perfect, it might bring a premium. The other bottles are going to be of minimal value.
I don't see any chips, cracks or deformities at all.

I just wanted to see more pictures of a great bottle. As far as a condition assessment goes, that's something that should be done in hand, by you or a knowledgeable, trustworthy bottle collector. Sorry if my comments were misleading. Of course, if you're closeby to middle Georgia, I'll be glad to look it over for you.
I used to live in live oak FL right in the Georgia line. I'm down in Okeechobee now. I posted more pics I hope that helps. I can't find a blemish in this thing.

I can see from your pictures why you're seeing yellow (amber), but still, it's hard to say from a picture. It may be an apricot puce, just as hard to capture. The only way to get a true value is to shop for your best consignment percentage and run it through any of the major auction houses, AGG, GWA or NCH. Either one will showcase a fine whiskey like that to it's fullest potential, accurately describing the color, and put it before the right buyers. When the hammer drops, you'll then know what it's worth at that moment, to the person who is the winning bidder. Value, like beauty, is relative to the buyer(beholder). Hope this helps and best of luck.
