As a collectible, whatever someone will pay for it.
Had the whiskey been left to age in the oak or other casks it was first aged in, it might be quite good today and might sell for three or four times the going price for Crown Royal, but once bottled, it doesn't 'age', it's just older.
That said, it will probably be fairly different from a bottle you could buy today that was aged ten years. That's because that long ago, the makers used a blend (it is a blend of aged whiskeys, not a single year like vintage wines) with the oldest component aged 35 years. That number has been reduced to 30 years. So a blend that was bottled in 1971 would have had at least some whiskey made in 1936. A blend bottled in 2009, the oldest would be from 1979.
So someone MIGHT buy this to drink and not just sit. But what they will pay is anyone's guess. It comes down to what you would accept.

Unless it was some sort of special made batch, then its probably not worth much at all. But you could try selling it on eBay.

Probably about the same as a bottle of the same stuff that you'd buy in a store today.

Whatever you can get someone to pay for it. It's just a bottle of second-hand whiskey from decades ago. It should still be okay to drink but you'l struggle to find anyone who will buy it.

Aside from wines, and a few beers, spirits like CR do not "age" once bottled.
