N.O.S. Coolant still good after 30 years?

I found some old, but new, sealed coolant from 1988... I'd hate to waste it.... Think its still good for my car? Or maybe something else?

I'm sure it's as good as it ever was, but how good is it?

Coolant changes are based on time and miles.

Put it in your now EX brother in laws car while he’s at work.

I assume it wouldn't be cost-effective to test it before throwing it in your car, so there might be no safer option than wasting it.
