But it looks like someone has changed the Hennessy and Courvoisier stoppers! They don't look original. Was this done for any reason?  Cheesy
Does it affect the value?

Dear Joey,
    You may be right! There is a small but subtle difference between French 'imperial' blue and Napoleonic blue, and your expert eye has picked up the difference.   Cool
    Happy holidays!
