When it comes to damaged bottles different degrees of damage affect the value in different ways. Heavy wear/stain may reduce the value by 25% or more, a small chip or crack by roughly 50%, and major damage (large lip chip, 1" or more long crack) by 75%. These are just rough percentages that I have observed in person. For example, once I bought a $2,500 bottle for $90 because the top (lip and neck) were broken off. So along those lines half of a $5000 bottle might fetch $25-50 on a good day. Seller seems to be a little out of touch with reality.
