Default circa 1970s Havana Club Rum

I found that bottle after my grandaunt died (2009). We were clear up her apartment, and in one cupboard there it was - old Havana Club Rum, never opened. My grandfather told me that this rum was given to grandaunt for her birthday circa 1970s. At that time our country (Estonia) was in USSR, and USSR was big friend with Cuba. Grandfather told me that this rum was quite rarely for sale in shop and market. I don´t know the exact year of this rum, but maybe somebody can tell me some facts or something about this bottle of rum. My gradfather don`t remember exact year of that birthday, maybe it was beginning of 1980`s. But maybe somebody can help. And what will be price of this rum now? There were 5 bottles more old drinks, cigarettes etc. But OK, here are some pictures:

Pernod acquired international marketing rights to Havana Club in the early 90s, so that rum was bottled before that transition. These bottles don't look very different from what has been bottled more recently as their 7 year old.
Looks like you've got a nice bottle of rum, but you aren't going to be able to retire by selling it on the internet.
