I can help you with answers on this one - I have a fairly large collection of whiskies myself (including several Usher's Special Reserve bottles), and have spent several thousands of hours researching bottles of my own & for others!
This Usher's label has been in continuous use (with little change) since the early 1900's, hence it still has the look/feel of a very old label style.
Your particular bottle does have a few small details that can help us to date it for you though...
1) Starting with the cap, this is called a "spring-cap" and was in use on Usher's bottles between 1929-1957.
2) On the upper portion of the main label, you can see the mention of a Royal Warrant ("To Her Majesty the Queen"): We know from historical archives that Queen Elizabeth II issued her Royal Warrants in Aug, 1955.
***The brand was later discontinued in 1983.
This leaves us with a fairly close dating period of between late 1955 & the end of 1957 as a dating period for you bottle...So this is currently about 60 years old now!
