Maybe others here have a better take on this, but I would open it and see what CR tasted like in 1965!
If you crossed paths with a Crown Royal nut, maybe you might get $100 for it. As an example, I am a Teachers nut and I am willing to pay for old bottles of the stuff, but I think again I am an exception. Looking at a bottle from the 1940s on the The Whiskey Exchange" matter of fact.
As has been mentioned many times in the past, the collectible market is mostly reserved for single malt blends, something a Canadian rye whiskey will never be.
If I were you, I'd open that bottle and have a taste, or if you have a good friend who likes Rye, give it to him, he will really appreciate it.

There is an historical aspect to such older bottles of CR, as they date from an era when Seagram actually ran multiple distilling sites across Canada, including the well-known Lasalle and Waterloo operations as well as lesser-known ones such as Amherstburg and Beaupré. Nowadays, to be able to taste a CR that actually contains any quantities of these distillates, you have to opt for the upper echelon offerings such as Special Reserve and XR. The Limited Edition did contain some, but I'm not so sure this is still the case.
Unfortunately, as has already been alluded to, these sorts of considerations don't really matter in the open market unless you happen upon that 'rare' collector specifically interested in what you have to offer.
