How do we (they) know that the bottle is from 1952? I was super lucky a few years ago to grab one off Ebay for under $10. It is full plastic, with a twine cap strap, and is (was) clearly dated "TOUR 1954". This one Chuck outed then, must be near the end of the run for the aluminum La Vittelloise Tour bidon.

Here's mine from '54: <http://www.wooljersey.com/gallery/fujifish1/MarksVintage/Torpado/Corsa_1955 _Gran_Sport/Torp55GranSport52LtBlu02.jpg.> As usual, click on the "double exposure" looking squares above the center of the pic for a MUCH larger and clearer view.
