The water heater you have pictured is manufactured for SABH in PA (See sticker).
That company merged with Mor-Flo according to this: http://www.usdoj.gov/atr/public/pres...992/211212.htm

So, the correct date would be: April of 1993.

Added with edit:
SABH, headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is a subsidiary of Australian Brewing Holdings, an Australian company. SABH manufactures and sells residential water heaters in the United States through its Bradford-White subsidiary, which is also headquartered in Philadelphia.

So, the water heater is actually a Bradford-White and not a Mor-Flo/American/Gamma.
