I *think* those bullet style blinkers were '55 - '57. Double check me, though.

I can confirm 1957, but cannot go back in time here in North Carolina at a Starbucks.

Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue, I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace. Where never lark, or even eagle flew. And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod, The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
