Is there a way to tell if my kitchen floor is real linoleum, or vinyl?

It's one big sheet, not squares. The house was built in 1964 and the floor is original. There is one place where it's pulling up, and I can see that it has a paper-like backing. I can't pull it back far enough to see any stamp or writing without ruining the floor.
I am thinking it's vinyl, but it's so hard to clean and keep clean that we've started to wonder if it's linoleum and needs to be waxed.
Is there a definitive way to tell? Is 1964 late enough to know for sure that it's vinyl?
