What API service is it? That will help narrow it down some.

Here is one I found on eBay for API SA-SB (SB was not approved for use after 1951)

Non-detergent SA-SB, maybe the 1950's at the latest ...

Awesome.

Old oil and beer cans are cool collectors items.

Witco Chmical Co. bought Amalie in 1960 from the Sonneborn family, so the can is post-1960.

Zip codes were introduced in the US in 1963, so the can is post-1963.

English motorcycles called for non-detergent oil.
Small engines too, maybe.

Non-detergent? Probably used for OPE, maybe even for 2-cycle mix.
