I don't think I've ever come across a tire that didn't have the date stamp.  Also, can't find the brand on web searches.  Has 'Avenger' on the sidewall.  Shows the size as MJ90H19, has the load rating, max pressure just no date.  Going out on a limb & guessing this tire is ancient & needs to be replaced.

It would be easier to help identify if you had a pic posted of the sidewall?

Trust me, it isn't there.  I know about the 4 digit from 2000- on, 3 digit, triangle, etc.

I don't think he was talking about the numbers, it's about identifying the tire, knowing more about the tire could give us a manufacturing date, or when the run ended. So, How about some pics of the tire side on ?

Date codes started in 2000, no date codes ? >22 years old.

Okay, think I found it...I was looking for a separate stamp with just the date but I guess that only applies to current tires.  With the 3 digit dates, the first two numbers are still the week with the last single number being the year within that decade.  1990's manufactured tires put a triangle to indicate it was 90's so 3 digits without a triangle is 80's....I don't see any triangle so I need a new front tire asap

I think they're pretty old, virtually nothing on the net about them. I did see a NOS Avenger brand tire on ebay but no info....

The date doesn't matter as much as the cracking on the sidewalls. That's a dangerous tire that needs to be replaced.
