Good vintage ports- how many are still out there?

I had a delivery today of '85 Dow ports from a NY merchant. When I lived in the city the 94's scored 100 by WS, but I'll expire before they are ready. I bought a couple cases of '85 and drank them all by 2002. I'll be interested to see how they have done with a little more time. (and a little more price)
I'm searching out '63's, for fun and pleasure and special company, and I can still find a few under $200, not many, they average $250 or more. I have never drank one, I gave one as a gift. A good port is probably the greatest pleasure that ever passed down my gullet. But I'm curious, how many 63's can possibly be undrunk by now? Zin, or anyone, any idea?
