This is from Decanter's port price thingy. The price of the 1977 is markedly different. I wonder if it will hold at this level or slide a little.

Interesting.

But more comparable vintages are:

1970 - £795
1967 - £600
1963 - £1080
1960 - £768

All of these are the case equivalent lowest prices from wine searcher in the UK today.

Is the 1977 really out of kilter with these vintages?

No, and the comparison you make is probably more relevant. I was also thinking that the 94 seems to have rushed up in price but on checking it is available at £330/case rather than the £492 quoted.
