    This is very nice Martell VOP spring cap from the 1950s I would suspect. US bottles from this period would have the importer name at the bottom of the main label and tax stamps which makes their exact age easier to determine.
    In the case of your bottle it can only be a “best guess”
    Very good level, very good condition except for the torn label.
    This is a very “common” bottle but very popular with collectors. I can offer $225 for it. I am located in Maryland.
