I strongly suggest spending a little time and money and have that tank tested.
I also would install a new safety relief valve after testing, I just don't trust old relief valves.
March 1974 I was in the hospital with a broken back, the guy in the bed next to me wasn't so lucky. He had a home made air compressor setup explode on him, nearly loosing both his legs.
Do not end up in his situation or worse because you were too cheap, or didnt want to take the time to drive into Seattle and have your tank tested.
